HOW I SNARED PC PERV; Sex-pest cop stalked terrified Tammy.

Byline: RICHARD SMITH

MUM Tammy Prescott yesterday told how she helped nail a rogue traffic cop who pestered her and other women drivers for sex.

Tammy Prescott, 27, was four months pregnant when first texted by perverted PC Jamie Slater - jailed last week for asking women for sex in return for ignoring minor traffic offences.

Slater tracked her down using the police computer after colleagues took her details when her car broke down.

He sent an anonymous text that read: "Tammy, do you fancy meeting for some no strings sexy fun?" Job Centre worker Tammy suspected a colleague was playing a joke, so she agreed to meet but decided to take a friend along.

The mystery man failed to turn up. But a police officer in a car stopped and asked for directions to a nearby pub.

When Tammy got home, she found another text saying: "Who was that copper you were talking to?"

Tammy, of Bridgend, South Wales, said yesterday: "I was completely shocked - whoever was texting me was also watching me. It was a horrible feeling because I immediately felt someone was playing a nasty game with me."

She soon started getting more texts with disturbing sexual overtones.

She decided to trap the stalker and agreed to a meet outside a local health clinic - and got a friend to hide nearby as a witness.

Again, the stalker did not show. But bizarrely the same policeman drove past twice. Tammy said: "I just thought that was a coincidence.

"By this time, I was quite worried because the texts were arriving several times a day. Whoever was sending them was angry because I had turned down his offer. And he knew where I lived, the car I drove and where I worked. It was very worrying."

But Tammy kept spotting the same policeman - and when she saw him in a patrol car outside her home at night she realised who the sex pest was.

She contacted the police and they took her mobile and began an inquiry.

Married dad-of-two Slater was eventually arrested and on Tuesday he was jailed for three-and-a-half years after admitting pestering eight women. He had sex with two of them.

Tammy said: "The first time I saw Slater close up, I felt insulted my stalker was so ugly. He was an animal who preyed on vulnerable women for his own sexual satisfaction."
