NEWS: PSNI officer arrested following Police Ombudsman receiving detailed information

A serving PSNI officer has this morning been arrested as part of an investigation into inappropriate use of social media, including leaking confidential information into live Police investigations. 

The Ombudsman has received a number of detailed complaints, at least one of which included the names of officers involved.

It is also understood the Ombudsman is in receipt of information about the improper use of a police radio.

The setting up of a number of social media accounts, which leaked confidential police information, coincided with internal PSNI orders that officers could no longer brief journalists, on or off the record, without the briefing being tape recorded. 

This has given rise to suspicions that the setting up of a deniable social media network to leak information about suspects and ongoing investigations was approved within the highest level of policing. 

The accounts were also used to target anyone critical of police. 

The suspicions that this was a PSNI approved operation has been heightened by the PSNI refusal to deal with any of the officers involved, which led to the Ombudsman having to call himself in and arrest at least 1 officer. 

One PSNI officer, Constable Lesley Stock, has already been referred to the PPS in relation to social media harassment of a loyalist ‘suspect’ in another unrelated case in which she was the investigating officer. 

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.

The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.

f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
