Thames Valley officer jailed over squad car sex
An on-duty police officer who used a police car to meet a man for sex has been jailed for misconduct in a public office.
Mark Martin drove the man to a car park in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, in November, and they had sex.
He resigned from Thames Valley Police in December and later pleaded guilty to misconduct in a public office and outraging public decency.
Martin was jailed for six months at Reading Crown Court.
The 36-year-old former PC, from Calvert Green, was based at High Wycombe police station when he arranged to meet a member of the public on 8 November, the court was told.
The pair then had consensual sexual activity in a car park near Hughenden Manor.
Martin was arrested on 28 November and resigned from his post the following month.
He was jailed for six months for misconduct in a public office and one month, to run concurrently, for outraging public decency.
