The ex glamour model was filmed in her garden for up to five years after the cop, who went to school with her, tracked her down in South Yorkshire.
He used a powerful lens to capture the mum-of-three and her daughters, 18, 15 and eight, who were also sunbathing in their garden in bikinis or swimsuits.
Pogmore, 51, wept as he was jailed for a year last week for four counts of misconduct in public office after filming a couple having sex on their patio, naturists and others sunbathing in their gardens.
Tracy, who posed topless in The Sun in 1979, told This Morning: “The footage was taken in 2007 from the family home we shared. It can to the police’s attention in 2015. I got a phone call from south Yorkshire police who said they needed to see me about an incident.
“Funnily enough when they came they started asking questions with regards to a helicopter I immediately said are they videoing me. I knew before they spoke. They were over my house for a couple of years, three or four times a week but I thought I was on some sort of flight path.
“At the time I was sunbathing naked with my two children either side of me, 15 and 18 at the time, and they had bikinis on. My youngest daughter Florence, who was only 8 at the time, was also caught on camera in a bikini.”
Tracy believes there are more tapes of her naked even though she was only shown one.
Her nightmare began in October 2014 when South Yorkshire cops told her they had discovered footage taken by Pogmore of her sunbathing naked in the secluded garden of her remote home.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, she said: “He has left me terrified. He is a taxpayer-funded pervert.
While he was flying around for his own sexual kicks criminals were on the run.
“It was the perfect job for a man like him flying around for secret kinky filming sessions.
“I am angry with the police force for allowing him to do what he did. I have no faith or trust in the police any more.
“It was a complete and utter violation of my privacy. I feel sick to know that it took place.”

On the video, taken in 2007, the police helicopter had circled her home as she lay naked on a sun lounger alongside two of her daughters in bikinis.
And when mum-of-three Tracy, 53, was told the identity of the officer she was horrified to realise they had gone to school together in nearby Rotherham.
Tracy, who worked alongside fellow Page 3 Girl Sam Fox and TV comic Jim Davidson, said: “We were two years apart but he would have known me.
“Now I’m terrified he’s been secretly watching me, stalking me, following me for decades.

“My home was where I felt safe. We had a place in the middle with large day beds and cushions where we sunbathed. I would sunbathe naked. It was something I started as a Page 3 girl to avoid tan marks. I felt safe there so it felt natural.
“There were high walls, huge trees, no neighbours. The only thing that disturbed us was the yellow and black police helicopter.
“I thought we must be under the flight path or near the police helicopter pad as it went over so often.
“It would fly over our garden about three times a week in the summer and my daughter Florence would always wave frantically at the officers inside.
Tracy became well known in 1979 when she was chosen as one of just eight Page 3 girls
“She says that running towards the helicopter is her earliest childhood memory.
“We would actually laugh and say, ‘We can do what we want in our garden, nobody can see us, only the police helicopter’.
“And I wouldn’t cover up unless they hovered directly over the garden. It would fly quite low, but usually a little distance away, flying over the fields next to us, not directly above. But it made a huge noise. You couldn’t miss it.
“We’d be in the garden all summer. The noisy helicopter was often in the background and ironically it made me feel safe. It felt like the officers were out capturing local criminals.
Tracey was left heartbroken and her daughter's were devastated by the actions of Pogmore
“I was heartbroken. The girls were devastated. I’d done everything I could to protect my children over the years and I felt like I had failed them.
“Every time I was encouraging them to go into our beautiful garden I was unknowingly putting them in danger.”
The depraved antics of Pogmore — who served in South Yorkshire Police’s Air Support Unit — were finally uncovered after he befriended a couple at a sex den in Sheffield called La Chambre.
They agreed to give sex shows on their back patio so he could watch them while on duty. But he secretly recorded their romps.

And when Pogmore’s girlfriend — who had no idea he was cheating as a swinger — found the graphic footage she reported him to police.
He was sacked but forgot to empty his office drawers, where tapes of other unsuspecting locals including Tracy were discovered.
The court heard Pogmore filmed Tracy in August 2007.
Prosecutor Richard Wright said the chopper started circling so that the crew could see into the garden. Its “sophisticated camera” was trained on Tracy and her family.

He added: “The camera has a powerful zoom and the operator used that to zoom in on the naked body of the woman and in particular her genitalia.
“It was a significant violation of their privacy, orbiting her home and using this equipment to film her naked body.
“There is self-evidently no legitimate policing purpose.”
Jurors at Sheffield crown court were also shown an 11-minute long video of the swinging couple in intimate acts as they waved at Pogmore in his helicopter overhead.
Two pilots and two police observers who were on board with Pogmore during the flights in which the illicit footage was shot were found not guilty of misconduct in public office. They now face police disciplinary proceedings.

Pogmore had earlier pleaded guilty. Sentencing him, Judge Peter Kelson described his actions as “offensive” and “invasive”.
Last week sordid images from inside the seedy swingers’ dungeon in Sheffield where Pogmore cavorted with friends were revealed.
They included a range of sex tools and sleazy pictures of half-naked women and sex acts on the wall.
Tracy, who has waived her anonymity, fears that other films made of her by Pogmore have still not been found.

She said: “I am grateful that the police have found one video, that he has been stopped, but he must have flown over our home a hundred times so how many more are out there?
“Filming me? My kids? I am terrified that something might appear on the internet.
“During the hearing the prosecution said that in each of our cases there was no legitimate police purpose for the flights he took. How can that be possible?
“Isn’t somebody checking their flight path?

“Surely somebody must have realised how strange it was that the same path was taken over my home on such a regular basis.
“Isn’t a senior officer checking the footage they’ve taken? I’m so angry he could get away with this for so long. He was given a free rein to be a rogue police officer.
“Nobody checked up on him properly. So much taxpayers’ money was wasted.”
Tracy became a well known name in 1979 when she was chosen as one of just eight Page 3 girls.

She said: “I was slim, tall and leggy. I couldn’t believe I made it.”
At the time 300 girls wrote in every day to The Sun trying to be a Page 3 girl.
She said: “We flew all over the world for photo shoots — I loved going to Barbados and Florida.
“For a 16-year-old from Rotherham it was so exciting.

“I worked with Linda Lusardi and Sam Fox. I was going on the TV with Jim Davidson and The Grumbleweeds. Even Benny Hill rang me up to give me work advice.
“I was a body double on A View To A Kill with Roger Moore. I remember one scene where I wore a negligee and sexy high fluffy slippers and had to sit on a bed in a hotel site.
“Roger walked in and said ‘Cracking legs darling’. He was so charming and charismatic.”
Tracy later turned her back on modelling and acting after marrying childhood sweetheart Paul, a landscape gardener.

But now the couple have divorced and Tracy has moved out of the house.
She said: “This has shattered me. Waiting for the court case has been hell.
“I have been so anxious. I just couldn’t go to court.
“I’ve moved to a house that is less private since getting divorced and I guess I’ve become paranoid.
“I shut all my curtains tightly. I’m now terrified of someone looking in.”
