Serving police officer sentenced for indecent communications with child

A serving police officer's been sentenced for indecent communications with a child in Tayside. 

Cameron Fraser's been handed a six month community payback order. 

The 28-year-old pled guilty to the offence at Kirkcaldy Sherriff Court on May 7.

Police Scotland's Professional Standards Department will now begin proceedings for misconduct. 

Chief Superintendent Helen Harrison, Professional Standards Department said: “Fraser's offending and behaviour was appalling.

"In committing this crime Fraser believed that his online offending would go undetected. However, there is no hiding place, and as a result of our investigation he will now rightly face the consequences of his actions.

"It is right policing is held to high standards and we will always support officers and staff acting with our values and standards at heart. Those who reject what we stand for do not belong in Police Scotland.”
