British cop gets sack for posting genitals snap online

London, Dec 14 (IANS) A senior police inspector, who served in a British police force for 25 years, was sacked after he posted a picture of his genitals on social networking website Facebook, the Daily Mail reported.

Inspector Daemon Johnson, who worked with Northamptonshire Police, was fired after officers spotted the explicit photo online.

The officer also sent inappropriate emails and made lewd comments to female members of staff, the daily said.

He was sacked for gross misconduct following an investigation by the police's professional standards department.

Johnson is not the first in Britain to be sacked or forced to resign because of such online indiscretions.

One officer from Cheshire resigned in October 2010 after being accused of harassing a former partner on the website.

Earlier this year, four officers from the same force as Johnson were banned from using Twitter after being caught sending inappropriate messages to each other.
