A COP has been found guilty of gross misconduct after he posted explicit pictures of himself on OnlyFans – to raise money for a HAIR TRANSPLANT. 

PC Harry Edwards, 25, was caught out after a friend recognised him on the popular adult site and tipped off police bosses. 

PC Harry Edwards was found guilty of gross misconduct

He resigned from his role at Hertfordshire Constabulary last September, but admitted gross misconduct to the panel after posting the explicit pictures online. 

The disciplinary hearing heard that the officer, who was based at Watford, failed to declare to the Chief Constable that he was earning money from OnlyFans

The police constable, who has a receding hairline, was accused of potentially bringing the force into disrepute with his actions. 

Edwards denied using his policeman status when posting the images, and claimed that he went out of his way to disguise himself.

But he was caught after a pal spotted his profile, using the name “Brett Hunter”, and advertised it on social media. 

The hearing also heard that he had planned to use the money he made from the adult website to pay for his hair transplant. 

Jenny Oborne, representing Hertfordshire Constabulary, told the panel: “The allegation relates to the operation of an OnlyFans account and a second allegation is of failing to declare a business interest to the Chief Constable.

“The existence of his OnlyFans account came to the attention of the police via a member of the public. 

“It became apparent that Mr Edwards was using the account to upload and sell sexualised images.

 “The website is subscription-based, where users can sell original content – the use that account was for content that was sexual in nature. 

“He had been using the pseudonym Brett Hunter. He had advertised the page under the alias on Twitter.

“In a pinned tweet he wrote: ‘Lockdown has been long, let’s make it messy’ with a hyperlink to the OnlyFans account. The site remained active for a number of months.

“The amount made was $62 dollars, which equates to £45. It’s not apparent what content that money was received from – it is likely to have been more than one source, because OnlyFans was advertised as three dollars entry.”

Edwards admitted breaching his duties and responsibilities as a police constable and breaching conduct from March 21 to July 1, 2020.

Speaking to the hearing, he said:  “I used the pseudonym to hide my identity because I didn’t want anyone else, such as friends and family, to know what I was doing. I also felt embarrassment.

“Not all of the posts were sexual – some were topless pictures and some were pictures of me in my clothes. 

“I did it because the start-up was cost-free and I could do it in my own room. At the time, during lockdown, overtime in the police was not an option.

‘DISGUSTED’

“I didn’t realise it was a breach of conduct at the time. I closed the account because I think I realised ‘what the hell am I doing?’

“It got to a point where I wasn’t making any money whatsoever. I had a reality check.

“I cropped most of the pictures to take out my face. I used an app to change certain features – I made my nose smaller and my face thinner. 

“The photos however do identify me. The money I received from this account I would have used for my hair transplant.

“My use of OnlyFans has left me feeling disgusted. It has ruined friendships with people, it has the potential to ruin my career and it has strained relationships with my partner’s parents.

“It has actually got to the point where if anyone mentions OnlyFans as a general topic, I can’t deal with it.”

Edwards, who now works as an operations manager,  resigned in September 2021 but claims that he did not leave over fear of being dismissed. 

Panel Chairman Darren Snow, sitting alongside Superintendent Sue Jameson and independent panel member, Liz McEwan, ruled that the allegation of the operating the OnlyFans was gross misconduct, and failing to declare it as a business interest was misconduct.

Mr Snow said: “We are perplexed that Mr Edwards did not explore other options of gaining income.

“For the panel it is a strange move to make for a police officer.”
