Police officer suspended after setting up OnlyFans profile under name 'Officer Naughty'

A police officer was suspended from the force after setting up an OnlyFans account.
PC Sam Helena was reprimanded by seniors at the Metropolitan Police after they discovered that she had been going by the name 'Officer Naughty' on the subscription site.
She later quit her role, pending a disciplinary hearing over her behaviour.
Branding herself a 'Good Girl Gone Bad' on her OF page Helena had apparently already been warned about her conduct after she posted a video of her tongue stud to TikTok while wearing her police uniform back in 2020.
She also shared a number of racy videos and pictures to her Twitter and Instagram accounts, where she went by the name 'Inked Barbie'.
However, the straw that broke the camel's back was when her bosses discovered she had set up a pay-per-view account on OnlyFans.
A spokesperson for the Met said: "We are aware of the account and the officer, who has tendered their resignation, has been suspended.
"The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards is investigating."
Following the decision to suspend Helena, retired DCI Mick Neville threw his support behind the force.
Speaking to the Sun, he said it was about upholding a standard of professionalism as a serving police officer.
"This states ‘I will behave in a manner, whether on or off duty, which does not bring discredit on the police service or undermine public confidence in policing'," he said.
“This officer has demeaned her uniform by posing and pouting on social media.”
He went on: “The new commissioner Sir Mark Rowley has vowed to clamp down on misconduct and misogyny in the force.
“The last thing the commissioner needs is a stripping WPC calling herself ‘Officer Naughty’ to add to his woes."
But Helena isn't the only person to turn to OF for some extra income, though.
James Cowes was working as a healthcare assistant in the private sector, specialising in dementia and end-of-life care - a job he says was 'rewarding'.
But after working for the company for six years, the 23-year-old from Bournemouth was coming away with around £1,000 a month after tax and was working three 12-hour shifts a week.
