IOPC Regional Director Sal Naseem said: “It is clear that John McCarthy resorted to hunting for his own sexual gratification and personal gain. This kind of behavior had no place in the police. Mr McCarthy was appointed as a police officer. He would have been fired immediately for misusing his confidence and power if he had not already resigned and this is the result that police officers should expect and receive.
“His behavior has had a serious and devastating effect on his victims, and has had a serious, lasting effect on public confidence in individual officers and the police service in general.”
