Rookie cop, 21, suspended over ‘fling’ with top ranking officer also being probed over affair
A rookie cop suspended over an alleged fling with a senior officer is being probed over an affair with a drugs kingpin.
PC Caitlin Howarth, 21, was sidelined in 2021 over an alleged affair with Chief Supt Daniel Greenwood, 38.
But their apparent relationship was only exposed after anti-corruption cops began looking into her links with a drugs boss now in jail over the supply of heroin.
The probationary officer remains suspended as both investigations by West Yorkshire Police’s Professional Standards Directorate continue.
The Chief Constable has been made aware of the alleged misconduct.
Her alleged fling with married Chief Supt Greenwood, who has been a serving officer for almost 20 years and is the Bradford District Commander, became the talk of the force. He was also suspended.
Chief Constable John Robins will have the final say on whether or not any action is taken against the suspended officers.
PC Howarth, who lives at her mother’s house in Bingley, West Yorks, regularly posts pictures of herself wearing revealing outfits on her social media pages and has more than 10,000 followers on Instagram.
There is no reference to her job as a police officer.
New PCs must serve two years as a probationary officer.
