A March-based police officer has been dismissed immediately and without notice for gross misconduct.
Detective Sergeant Matthew Swash was found to have breached the standards of professional behaviour.
He was found to have breached the standards in respect of honesty and integrity, authority respect and courtesy, equality and diversity, orders and instructions and confidentially.
A police spokesman said his actions were found to have been discreditable when he appeared before a conduct hearing yesterday.
In February, Swash was sentenced to two months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, after pleading guilty to an offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
