Four police officers have resigned after an investigation revealed they had offered remand prisoners favours in return for confessions. Prisoners were allowed to have sex with their girlfriends, take home visits and were given cigarettes and extra meals. Bedfordshire Police confirmed on Monday that three officers were required to resign. A fourth resigned voluntarily. 'Operation Bedouin' revealed some of the prisoners admitted to some crimes that took place when they were in jail. Following the identification of irregular crime recording practices at Luton, Bedfordshire Police conducted a detailed internal investigation ending with a misconduct hearing in May 2006. As a result of the investigation, one officer has voluntarily resigned from the force, three others have been required to resign and one fined a total of 10 days' pay and reprimanded. "That's it, resign and the matter is closed!. Surley those confessions will be on rocky ground if or when the cases are heard in Court?"
