Daniel Babbs

Daniel Babbs, a former metropolitan police officer of Redhill, Surrey has been put on the sex offenders register after admitting making indecent photographs of children. Babbs used to be a police constable with the forensic services department.

Babbs was arrested in September 2021 after he reportedly uploaded an image on social media. When his electronic equipment was examined, more such images were found in it. He resigned from the department in November 2021 and was charged on 26 June 2022. 

On July 26th, Daniel Babbs pleaded guilty to three counts of making an indecent photograph or pseudo-photograph of a child and one count of possessing a prohibited image of a child. On October 7, he was sentenced to six months imprisonment at Gulliford Magistrate’s Court.

He was also suspended for 18 months along with a seven-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order and a 10-year Notification Order. In addition, Babbs was ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work and pay £425 in costs.

Chirs Porter, Director of Forensic Services, said: “Our police officers and staff hold a position of trust and are here to serve the people of London, including its most vulnerable. It is clear that former police constable Babbs failed to meet the standards that we expect and this was reflected in his guilty plea.”

He added, “We remain committed to ensuring that our workforce meets the highest levels of professionalism. Where we find this to not be the case, we will take appropriate action through the criminal courts and our own internal misconduct procedures.”

The Metropolitan Police said misconduct proceedings will now begin. These can take place now that the criminal case has finished.
