First police officer arrested over alleged payments for journalists

52-year-old woman held at Essex police station after being arrested under Operation Elveden,

Wednesday 21 December 2011 10.38 GMT

The Metropolitan police have arrested a 52-year-old female serving police officer over payments for journalists, Scotland Yard has said.

The 52-year-old woman, believed to be a royal protection officer, is being held at an Essex police station after detectives arrested her at her home at dawn.

She is the first police officer arrested under Operation Elveden, an inquiry into alleged illegal payments to officers which is running alongside the Operation Weeting phone-hacking inquiry.

A police statement said: "At approximately 06:00hrs this morning, Wednesday 21 December, officers from Operation Elveden arrested a serving Metropolitan Police Servive (MPS) officer on suspicion of misconduct in a public office and offences contrary to the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906.

"The 52-year-old woman was arrested at a residential address in Essex and is currently in custody at an Essex police station.

"This is the eighth arrest under Operation Elveden. In linked investigations; 16 people have been arrested under Operation Weeting and one person arrested under Operation Tuleta."

"Operation Weeting is conducting the new investigation into phone hacking.

"Operation Elveden is the investigation into allegations of inappropriate payments to police. This investigation is being supervised by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).

"Operation Tuleta is investigating a number of allegations regarding breach of privacy received by the Met since January 2011, which fell outside the remit of Operation Weeting, including computer hacking."

More details soon …
