A young female police officer is facing the sack after being convicted of stalking her ex-boyfriend – just months after joining the force.
PC Emma Bewick, 21, was handed a suspended sentence at Cwmbran Magistrates Court for repeatedly turning up at the home and work of her former partner Gavin Burrows.
A source told Mail Online that the recent graduate is said to have met Mr Burrows earlier this year and had a brief relationship with him, which ended shortly before she joined the South Wales Police force.
But despite the relationship being over, the court heard how Bewick lurked outside the home of Mr Burrows and repeatedly showed up at his job and places he often frequented.
Prosecutors said she ‘pursued a conduct which amounted to stalking’, which she ‘knew or ought to have known amounted to harassment.’

Bewick had studied a policing degree at the University of South Wales – but less than six months after graduating her career is already set to end.
The charge said Bewick, of Llanharan, Pontyclun, ‘conducted a course of unwanted contact’ against Mr Burrows.
Prosecutors said her behaviour included: ‘Attending at his home address unannounced, attempting to make unwanted contact with him and attending at places where he frequents.’
Bewick admitted stalking without fear, alarm, or distress between October 7 and 25 at Talbot Green, South Wales.
She appeared at Cwmbran Magistrates Court on November 11 where she was handed a 10-week suspended sentence.
