PCSO quits after saucy snaps revealed
9:00am Wednesday 30th May 2012 in Black Country News
A BRIERLEY Hill community cop who posted saucy half-naked modelling pictures of herself on Facebook has quit her job, the News can reveal.
Rebecca Morris, a PCSO with West Midlands Police, left colleagues agasp when they spotted racy photographs of her posing in skimpy outfits at car shows.
In addition to patrolling the beat as a member of the neighbourhood policing team for Brockmoor and Pensnett,the 29-year-old brunette had been stripping off between shifts and carving out a second career as a motor show promotions model.
Revealing pictures of Rebecca posing in her underwear and the littlelist of little black dresses posted on the officer’s personal Facebook site made headlines after colleagues at Brierley Hill Police Station expressed their shock at her out-of-hours antics.
The images included a shot of Rebecca, who was previously based in Stourbridge, in a see-through shirt - showing off tattooed bare legs while sitting seductively in front of a blue VW Golf.
Others saw the leggy officer posing next to a car in a basque-like thigh-high black mini dress and sexy ankle boots.
A website promoting Rebecca’s services as a model in Germany was also spotted online.
When quizzed about the images, Rebecca’s dad told reporters calling at her Quinton home that “all girls do that kind of thing”.
Chief Inspector Julian Harper, from West Midlands Police’s Professional Standards Department, however, said police officers and staff were advised when posting material online that “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”.
But he stressed police had “found no cause for further action or comment” in this case.
However it has now emerged that Ms Morris has resigned from her post as a PCSO.
A police spokesman said: “We can confirm Rebecca Morris resigned from the force on Tuesday May 22.”
