Ex-North Yorkshire special constable admits child sex offences
A former special constable with North Yorkshire Police has pleaded guilty to a string of child sex offences.
Ryan McCaffrey, 33, admitted six counts of making indecent images of children, one count of possession of a prohibited image and one count of possession of extreme pornography.
McCaffery, of Richmond Close, Catterick Garrison, was given a 12 month jail term, suspended for two years.
He carried out his offences between June 2018 and June 2019.
York Crown Court heard how McCaffrey was a self-employed photographer and had also worked as a staff member with North Yorkshire Police.
He was given a five year sexual harm prevention order and a 40 day rehabilitation order.
A force spokesperson said McCaffrey had "let down the policing family".
