A CIVILIAN investigator working for Dorset Police appeared in court yesterday accused of illegally accessing police records.

Malcolm Geal, a 56-year-old former officer with West Yorkshire Police, entered no plea to eleven counts of breaching the Data Protection Act by looking up and passing on personal data from criminal records and incident logs on the Dorset Police computer system.

Bournemouth Magistrates Court heard the alleged offences are said to have taken place at Dorset Police Headquarters in Winfrith between December 7 last year and January 13.

Geal, of Matchams Lane, Christchurch, was released on unconditional bail to attend Bournemouth Crown Court on June 16.
