A Greater Manchester police officer who had sex with a vulnerable woman while on duty has been jailed for two years.

Peter Jee, 38, from Urmston, pleaded guilty to misconduct in public office at Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court.

The incident took place in Rochdale on 20 August 2010 when Jee was a sergeant in the town.

Police said he returned alone to an address after dealing with a domestic incident there with two other officers.

He initially went to the address with two constables in response to an emergency call from a woman threatening to harm herself with a knife, police said.

After the three officers dealt with the incident and left the address, Jee later returned and had sex with the woman.

This was reported and investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Deputy Ch Const Ian Hopkins said: "Jee's inexcusable actions let everyone down - those that we protect and those that work selflessly to deliver policing across Greater Manchester.

"I want to reassure everyone that we do not and will not tolerate such behaviour.

"The sentence given sends out a clear message that society expects the highest standards from those who have a duty to protect them."

Jee resigned from the Greater Manchester Police in January 2011.

Jee had also been charged with rape but the allegation was not proceeded with by the prosecution.

  • Bristol Academy extends reach overseas with first foreign students

    With the doors to its brand new £1million training centre officially open, one of the UK's leading apprentice training providers, Bristol based S&B Automotive Academy, is showcasing its world-class facilities by launching a series of foreign student exchanges for the first time in its 41-year history. To get a flavour of what life is like as an apprentice in the UK, the Academy hosted 16 apprentice engineers and bus drivers from the G9 Automotive College in Hamburg, Germany, as part of a Europe-wide vocational training initiative called the ‘Leonardo Programme’ with support from the European Social Fund. In a reciprocal arrangement, S&B will be sending nine apprentices to Germany during February 2012 so that they can get an appreciation of life in the automotive industry on the Continent. A further three German exchange groups are being planned for next year. Designed to assist the development of vocational skills and training across Europe, including work placements for trainees, the Leonardo Programme has a budget of €1.75bn, which is helping to encourage UK organisations to work with their counterparts abroad. In what is expected to be another challenging year for employers in the UK automotive sector, S&B’s Chief Executive, Jon Winter, claims that the exchange initiative will bring many benefits to the Academy and its apprentices: “In a world of global automotive brands, it’s important for our learners to understand the international context of the industry they have chosen to make their career. This new exchange programme will enable apprentices and Academy staff alike to achieve a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities within the automotive arena in Europe. With the Academy’s influence also extending to the USA and Asia, there’s every possibility that this initiative could move further afield in the future.” Continued Winter: “The need for skilled technicians across the world is on the increase and we actively encourage our apprentices to look at broader horizons during their training. Many of them have already learned the phrase ‘Vorsprung durch Gelehrtheit’, quite simply, ‘Advancement through learning.” In the 2010/11 academic year, S&B doubled the number of successful Apprenticeships over the previous year with some 350 apprentices graduating from the Academy. At the same time, achievement levels reached an all-time high with an overall success rate of 85%. For those learners on the Advanced Apprenticeship three-year programme, success rates were even higher, at over 98%.
