A former Hatfield police officer has been charged with one count of sexual activity with a child.

Sergeant Michael Grigg, a serving police officer, is due to appear in court tomorrow after he was arrested as part of an Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) managed investigation conducted by Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Safeguarding Command.

Mr Grigg, 34, was charged on Wednesday, April 22 and released on conditional bail to appear before Oxford Magistrates’ Court.

The allegation relates to a period of time between 2007 and 2012.

He remains suspended from duty at this time.
