Police Officers' Criminal Convictions
10:28am 4th January 2012
Police officers in Cornwall and Devon have criminal convictions including actual bodily harm, arson and drug possession.
The force admits more than 100 have records.
In most cases they happened quite a long time before people joined the force.
Devon and Cornwall Police say some date back to the 1970s, and are for low level things like motor offences.
But another 11 have been convicted while they have been working as an officer.
Officials say usually if that happens they would be out the door, but each case is assessed individually.
