A former special constable who fraudulently obtained almost £9,000 has been sentenced to four months' imprisonment, suspended for 18 months.

Moshin Nadeem, 27 (24.01.1992) of Babbacombe Gardens, Ilford was sentenced at Southwark Crown Court on 14 August after he pleaded guilty to a charge of fraud by abuse of position.

Nadeem must also complete 150 hours' unpaid work and a 10-day rehabilitation activity. 

An investigation by the Serious Crime Unit found that Nadeem, formerly a Metropolitan Police Special Constable, defrauded his old place of work, a large department store chain, of approximately £8,919.73 in a three month period, between June and November 2017. 

A gross misconduct review will now be carried out by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS).

Nadeem resigned on 14 September 2018.
