Sex Rap for Top Cop.

A Police boss has been branded a sex pest. Inspector Ian Cameron was disciplined by his chief constable for making offensive remarks to women officers.

The 42-year-old father-of-two will lose more than pounds 1,500 in pay and undergo retraining and counselling before he is allowed back to work.

Cameron was suspended from his duties at Stirling after at least two women police officers complained about him in November.

His punishment was imposed following a hearing before Central Scotland Chief Constable William Wilson.

Cameron is on sick leave and not expected

to return to his post for some weeks.

Cameron, a church elder who lives in Tullibody, Clackmannanshire, is expected to be moved after he returns to avoid him working with the women who lodged the complaints.

Two increments worth more than pounds 1,500 a year have been docked from his pay.

And he has been ordered to go for retraining in sexual equality.

None of the women involved was called to give evidence, but it is understood at least one of them needed counselling.

An insider said: "The comments might have been taken differently by other people. But the top brass stress that sexual harassment won't be tolerated."

Another source said: "Some people think he's just been given a slap on the wrist but the punishment is as far as the chief could have gone without demoting or sacking him."

Cameron, an inspector for 10 years, would not answer the door of his home yesterday.

A police spokesman said: "The chief constable considered all the facts and the officer's 22 years service before making a decision on an appropriate punishment."
