Cornwall PCSO charged over sex claims

A police community support officer has been charged with misconduct in public office over two alleged affairs with vulnerable women he met while at work.

Peter Bunyan, who is married with children, is alleged to have been seeing the two women at the same time for ten months. One of the alleged affairs is said to have lasted more than three years.

Bunyan, who was suspended about six months ago after a complaint, is also accused of sending "sex texts" while on duty to a third woman in order to start an affair.

The former car park manager, who has worked as a police community support officer in Cornwall for nearly eight years, is also accused of illegally accessing computer records on the three women.

The case was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), which managed the inquiry conducted by Devon and Cornwall Police.

Bunyan has also been charged with three offences of misconduct, one in relation to each of the three women, of accessing their computer records without "legitimate reason". Those offences are alleged to have been committed between October 2009 and January this year.

My comment: Not a good advert for Police Community Support Officers.
