A former police officer has reportedly entered guilty pleas to 21 charges of accessing personal information about women on a police database.
Jeremy Malifa, 34, appeared in Auckland District Court this morning for a pre-sentence indication hearing.
At the hearing, Malifa changed his plea to guilty on all counts, Fairfax reported.
It was also reported the ex-cop lost his interim name suppression.
Speaking to 1 News outside court today, Malifa said: "I regret my actions and I'm sorry."
The charges resulted from a long-running investigation into Malifa's conduct during his time as a police officer.
The charges of accessing a computer system for a dishonest purpose related to unauthorised access of the Police National Intelligence Application system.
It is understood he used the computer system to search women he was attracted to.
A police spokeswoman said police would not be commenting on the matter until after Malifa was sentenced.
A sentencing date is yet to be set.
