East Hartford police say a nine-year-veteran of the police force is the subject of a criminal investigation involving improper use of police records systems.

Police charge that Juma Jones —  who already is on administrative leave after being arrested by Hartford police in a domestic violence case —  used the “Connecticut Online Law Enforcement Communication Teleprocessing” computer system to access personal information about his ex-girlfriend and her sister.  Police say they learned about the online access after Jones was arrested in Hartford last month.

He’s charged with three counts of third-degree computer crime.
