Adrian Pogmore had admitted four charges of misconduct

A “sex-obsessed” police officer who used his force helicopter to film people having sex has been jailed.

“Team deviant” Adrian Pogmore, admitted four charges of misconduct in a public office. He was jailed for a year.

Two other officers and two pilots were cleared of misconduct following a three-week trial at Sheffield Crown Court.

Pogmore, 51, from Whiston in Rotherham, was described as “a swinging and sex-obsessed air observer”.

Sentencing him, Judge Peter Kelson QC told Pogmore: “You quite literally considered yourself above the law.”

The intrusive filming took place on four occasions between 2007 and 2012 when Pogmore was part of the South Yorkshire Police Air Support Unit.

The footage included a couple sitting naked by a caravan and a woman sunbathing naked with her daughters.

A couple who Pogmore knew were also filmed having sex on their patio.

Pogmore had been described in court by other members of the air support unit as the “team deviant”.

He was sacked by South Yorkshire Police in 2015 following an internal misconduct hearing.
