Miss Spayne, who joined the Humberside forces in 2019, complained last May after sending the video of himself.
There was an investigation where Ms. Spayne claimed they were “just friends.”
Agent G said the couple had been together for several months until Miss Spayne told him she was with someone else.
Other agents said the couple appeared to have a romantic bond and had been seen passionately on a night out.
Ms. Spayne, who did not attend the hearing, initially denied that there was any relationship or that she had given Officer G that impression.
But reports to another police officer indicated she had been “dumped” by Officer G, the hearing was told.
Ms Spayne was found guilty of gross misconduct and fired without notice
When questioned by professional standards, Miss Spayne admitted to giving Agent G a misleading impression.
Natalie Wortley, who chaired the panel, said her actions were “deliberate and planned” and could have ended the other officer’s career.
She added that she had shown no “sincere remorse or understanding” and that her actions had violated standards of professional conduct regarding honesty and integrity.
