A serving Met Police officer has denied a number of sexual offences, including two counts of sexual touching of a child.

Daniel Cooper, 31, works in the Met’s Specialist Crime and Operations Unit, and was charged with 16 offences on Thursday, September 21 following an initial arrest in May last year.

The 31-year-old denied all charges, pleading not guilty at a preliminary hearing at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, October 19.

Magistrates bailed the officer, who is currently suspended from duty, to appear at Woolwich Crown Court for trial on November 16.

A spokesperson from Met Police said: “PC Cooper was charged with 16 offences namely: four offences of gross indecency, four offences of indecent assault, two offences of sexual touching of a child, five offences of possession of indecent images and one offence of sexual activity in front of a child.

“He was not on duty at the time of the alleged offences.”

The Directorate of Professional Standards has been informed of the accusations.
