A former Metropolitan Police constable has appeared in court following an investigation by a watchdog into an allegation he abused his position for a sexual purpose.

Daniel Humphreys, 37, has been charged with two counts of misconduct in public office and appeared before Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London on Monday.

Wearing a white shirt and a black tie, he spoke to confirm his name, date of birth and address.

Humphreys is charged with misconduct in a public office in that it is alleged between July 4 2019 and November 21 2021, while acting as a Metropolitan Police officer, he engaged in an inappropriate personal relationship with a vulnerable female who he had met while investigating an alleged domestic incident in which she was the complainant.

The second charge alleges that between July 4 2019 and November 21 2021 while acting as a Metropolitan Police officer he obtained information from the Metropolitan Police Service computer systems for a non-policing purpose and shared the information with a person who was not a police officer.

It comes after the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) launched its investigation in April 2022 after receiving a mandatory referral from the Met.

“In December 2022 we completed our investigation and sent a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, which authorised the charges,” an IOPC spokesperson previously said.

Humphreys was based at the force’s central north command, the police watchdog said.

The Met Police said Humphreys was placed on restricted duties in June 2022 and has since resigned.

Humphreys, of Chipstead Valley Road, Coulsdon, was given bail until his next court appearance at Southwark Crown Court on October 23.
