A police sergeant is to face a misconduct hearing after he allegedly had sex with junior officers inside their station.

Adam Reed is also accused of secretly taking photos of a female colleague’s feet, only to later admit doing so because he had a “foot fetish”.

The former sergeant is due to answer to three alleged breaches of conduct next week in relation to authority, respect and courtesy, duties and responsibilities, and discreditable conduct.

Details of the allegations facing Mr Reed published on South Wales Police’s website said he allegedly had sex with an unnamed police community support officer while on duty at Cardiff Central police station on May 29, 2018.

It is also alleged that he received oral sex from colleague Pc Jemma Dicks on various dates between November 2017 and August 2018 at the same station.

Then, on October 9, 2018, Reed is accused of using his phone to covertly take photographs of the feet of a female officer from the force’s professional standards department while she was in his office.

Details of the allegations say: “He has since disclosed that he did so because he has a foot fetish.” 

The professional standards officer was speaking to Mr Reed in relation to a matter he had referred to the department involving Pc Dicks.

Pc Dicks also faces allegations of breaches involving duties and responsibilities and/or discreditable conduct, and that they amount to gross misconduct relating to the allegation that she gave oral sex to Mr Reed.

The misconduct hearing is due to take place on August 10.
