A Cambridgeshire detective downloaded “sexualised images of victims linked to voyeurism investigations for his own sexual gratification,” says Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

“Ten of the indecent images are from the mobile phone of one of his victims a 13-year-old vulnerable child.”

DC James Jordan will be sentenced at St Albans Crown Court for child sex offences on January 27.

Three days later he will face his bosses at a misconduct hearing at police headquarters in Huntingdon.

On December 12, 2022, Jordan pleaded guilty at St Albans Crown Court to five offences of making indecent images of children.

He also admitted three offences of misconduct in a public office.

Jordan is now subject to the Sex Offenders Register.

A statement on the Cambridgeshire Constabulary website explains the background.

It says that whilst on duty on August 17 last year, Jordan accessed confidential police systems “with no policing purpose”.

The statement says Jordan “downloaded indecent images of children, images of victims in voyeurism cases and accessed confidential files within other units across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire”.

The hearing will be told that following his arrest, Jordan’s home was searched, and various digital items were seized and examined.

“Examination of the devices revealed that Jordan has accessed systems whilst at work and downloaded confidential material for several months,” says the misconduct charge sheet.

Jordan was interviewed on two occasions.

“On the second occasion he made admissions to accessing confidential police systems and downloading sexualised images of victims linked to voyeurism investigations for his own sexual gratification,” says Cambridgeshire Constabulary.

“Jordan also made admission to downloading indecent images of children but denied a sexual interest in children.

“Ten of the indecent images are from the mobile phone of one of his victims a 13-year-old vulnerable child.”

The standards of professional behaviour engaged are:

  • Discreditable Conduct
  • Authority, Respect and Courtesy
  • Confidentiality
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Duties and responsibilities

Conditions for the hearing

The nature of the hearing is public.

Anyone wishing to attend the hearing should register their interest to attend by emailing publichearings@beds.police.uk by 4pm on the 27th of January 2023.

Those who attend the hearing will not be permitted to take part in the proceedings and must abide by conditions, including:

1) Recording of any part of the hearing is prohibited

2) There will be a ten-minute delay on reporting by any means

Cambridgeshire Constabulary adds: “It is likely that the findings and outcome of the hearing will be published in due course.”
