Her partner Jason Elliott became suspicious when he woke one morning to find Beale missing, a court was told.

Prosecutor James Haskell said: ‘He went to an address where he knew Mr Few was staying and caught him naked in bed with Ms Beale on top of him in a nightdress.

‘In an interview with police Beale admitted her partner had caught her cuddling Mr Few.’

Few was jailed for six years in 2003 after raping a woman in Devizes, Wiltshire and was put on the Sex Offenders Register for life.

Beale was in a ‘position of trust’ as manager in the Sexual and Violent Offenders Unit at Wiltshire Police where Few was one of the 50 people she looked after.

She denied having full sex with Few but a previous hearing was told there was an ‘abundance of evidence’ that they had slept together.

Few was in the public gallery at Bristol Crown Court to see his lover jailed over their illicit affair.

Beale admitted entering an intimate, emotional relationship with Few when she was his supervising officer knowing there was an imbalance of power and conflict of interest.

She used her Keyworker status during Covid to make hotel bookings knowing they were not for law enforcement purposes.

Beale also allowed Few to smoke cannabis at her home in the village of Kencot, Oxfordshire. The offences were committed between February and September 2020.

Judge Peter Blair QC told her: ‘Those who abuse trust and responsibility must understand that it is inevitable a custodial sentence is the consequence if they act in the way you did.

‘It’s an important matter of public deterrence for sentences to clearly flag the behaviour of the sort you fell into will be punished and will be punished severely.

Few bounded from the public gallery to hug a tearful Beale as she was jailed.

He had earlier been reprimanded for interrupting the judge’s sentencing remarks and stuck his middle finger up to him.

Following her guilty plea last month, an internal gross misconduct hearing was held last week and ruled that she would have been dismissed from Wiltshire Police had she not previously resigned.

She has also been added to the College of Policing barred register to ensure she will not be able to work for any another police force, nor in an external vetted risk role.

Deputy Chief Constable Paul Mills said: ‘It goes without saying that we expect the highest levels of conduct from all our officers, staff and volunteers, something which is even more important when an employee is directly involved in supervising offenders within our community.

‘She was immediately suspended from duties when this matter was brought to our attention, and, once she had pleaded guilty in court we held an internal misconduct hearing, which resulted in her being dismissed from the Force.

‘This misconduct outcome protects the public by ensuring she is placed on the national barred list and cannot seek further work at any other police forces.’
