Greater Manchester Police sex on duty sergeant jailed

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.
