A former Guildford police officer, with alleged links to an organised crime group, is due in court to face multiple corruption charges following an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) directed investigation.

Update: See Surrey Police statement below.

Adam Davies, 28, who was based at Guildford Police Station and resigned in October 2021, will attend Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, August 16 to face eight charges of misconduct in public office, relating to unlawfully accessing information on computer systems without a policing purpose and providing information to an organised crime group.

In a statement, the IOPC said: “Following a referral from Surrey Police we began our directed investigation in January 2021 which was conducted by Surrey Police’s Anti-Corruption Unit under our direction.

“In February 2022 the investigation was completed and a file of evidence was sent to the Crown Prosecution Service which authorised the charges.”

A Surrey Police spokesperson said: “The investigation into the offences, which are alleged to have been committed between January 2020 and December 2020, was carried out by Surrey Police’s Anti-Corruption Unit under the direction of the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

“Following consultation with the IOPC, the case was referred to the Crown Prosecution Service, which authorised the charges.”
