BLACK Country police officers couldn’t believe their eyes when they copped saucy half-naked snaps on the internet of a colleague with model ambitions.
Rebecca Morris, a PCSO with West Midlands Police, has been a familiar face on the beat in Brierley Hill.
But unbeknown to her bosses, the 29-year-old brunette has been stripping off between shifts and carving out a second career modelling skimpy outfits at car shows.
Describing herself as a public figure on her Facebook site, curvy Rebecca has posted dozens of revealing shots of herself posing in underwear and the littlest of little black dresses.
In one picture, wearing a see-through shirt and showing off tattooed bare legs, she sits seductively in front of a blue VW Golf.
Other sizzling snaps show the leggy officer posing next to the car in basque-like thigh-high black mini dress and sexy ankle boots.
She also has her own website promoting her services as a model in Germany.
Colleagues at Brierley Hill Police Station have expressed their shock at Rebecca’s saucy sideline.
One officer said: "Everyone knows Rebecca is a good-looking girl but it's not very professional to post half-naked pictures of yourself on Facebook when you are patrolling the beat and preventing crimes.
"I don't think the bosses are aware of her sideline - if they did I'm sure they'd insist she took the pictures off Facebook."
Rebecca, a member of the neighbourhood policing team for Brockmoor and Pensnett, is believed to be currently on sick leave.
West Midlands Police refused to confirm or deny the PCSO’s involvement in the modelling shots - citing data protection and privacy laws.
But speaking from her home in Quinton, her dad said she had posed for the images - adding: “All girls do that kind of thing.”
Chief Inspector Julian Harper, from the force’s Professional Standards Department, said: “All officers and staff in West Midlands Police are advised that when they contribute to social networking sharing websites they should also take into consideration the fact they will be placing personal details into the public domain which may impact on their own privacy.
“They are accountable for whatever they put into the public domain and may be subject to misconduct procedures should there be any inappropriate use of social media.
“We have looked into the matter and found no cause for further action or comment.”
