A police officer betrayed the trust of his community by collecting a large amount of child porn photos and videos, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, the former West Midlands Police officer has been jailed for 12 months after admitting to possessing thousands of indecent images of children.

Peter Hogan, 62, of Birmingham, was also a school governor at the time of his arrest. He pleaded guilty to three counts of making indecent images.

Hogan was arrested by officers from the force’s online child sexual exploitation team, and computers were seized from his address.

His laptop and phones were forensically analyzed, and detectives found that he had amassed over 3,965 indecent images and 209 videos of children.

The disturbing library included 243 category A level images of children and 91 category A movies. This is based on an internationally agreed police scale of indecency, where category A is the most disturbing.

Police found a further 213 category B images and 76 videos of children, and a total of 3,510 category C images together with 42 videos showing indecent images of children, the youngest believed to be six years old.

Hogan served as a police officer for 28 years in Birmingham. In addition to his jail term, the judge ordered Hogan to sign the sex offenders register for ten years.

He was also handed a sexual harm prevention order, which prevents him from working with children and bars him from owning Internet enabled devices.

Recorder Stephen Linehan QC told Higan during sentencing that he destroyed the public’s confidence in the police and brought disgrace on his force.
