Sergeant Tristan Davis was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault related to a party in April 2021.
Davis sexually assaulted the officer in an escalator at London Bridge station as the couple returned from a night out with colleagues.
They boarded the same train where he continued to assault the victim twice more, although the woman made “numerous attempts to push him away,” BTP said in a statement Friday.
“The victim was forced out of his seat and into the aisle to escape Davis.”
The victim reported the incident to BTP’s Professional Standards Department and Davis was suspended while a criminal investigation was underway.
During his interview with the police, Davis tried to pretend to detectives that his behavior was “playful”.
He was found guilty on November 14 and the judge sentenced him on Friday to fifteen months in prison, suspended for two years.
He was ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work, sign the sex offender register and have an electronic curfew from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. He also received a rehabilitation order.
Following his conviction, an expedited disciplinary hearing will take place.
Deputy Chief Constable Alistair Sutherland said: ‘Put simply, behavior like this is not ‘playful’ – it is a serious criminal offense and will always be treated as such.
“I am acutely aware of how incidents like this damage public confidence in the police, and I am equally appalled that an officer on duty could ever think of conducting himself in this manner.
“I want to reassure the public that we will always relentlessly challenge and thoroughly investigate any officer who breaks the law or fails to meet the exemplary standards we expect.”
