A West Yorkshire police community support officer, who, working from Wakefield, specialized in a role tackling cyber crime as a “Cyber Prevention Officer” is accused of accessing child porn and other depraved sexual acts for personal use.

Jonathan Plummer, 33, is also accused of distributing indecent images as well as possessing images of animals being sexually abused according to Yorkshire Evening Post.

At the time of the offending, Plummer was serving his role as a West Yorkshire police community support officer acting as a “Cyber Prevention Officer.”
