Undercover officers authorised to have sex with suspects as new Guidelines have been published by the College of Policing regarding Undercover Officers protocol on having sex with suspects.
The guidelines state that officers can indeed have sex with suspects if the refusal to do so will jeopardise the case. They must however keep it short and report it immediately to their senior authorising officer.
However, the guidance states that relationships between officers and suspects remain banned, but they accept sexual contact may be necessary to avoid compromising any undercover operations.
The new guidance states: “If an undercover officer engages in an intimate sexual relationship (for example, they perceive an immediate threat to themselves and/or others if they were not to do so), this activity will be restricted to the minimum conduct necessary to mitigate the threat.”
Officers are also allowed to send messages of a sexual nature, again only if not doing so might lead to compromising the case and they must keep it to a minimum.
