About me

Joined West Yorkshire Police in 1988.  In 2006 stepped away from uniform policing into West Yorkshire’s Counter Terrorism Unit as a Detective Inspector.  In 2009 seconded to London as Chief Inspector to implement recommendations of ‘Stockwell Learning the lessons-HMIC’.  At the same time working closely with Armed Policing and Counter Terrorism lead forces to develop a national Specialist Firearms capability.  Transferred to South Yorkshire Police in 2012 as part of the District Command Team in Rotherham, dealing with very challenging times for victims, communities, partners and colleagues.  In January 2015 took up post as Superintendent, heading up the National CBRN Centre.
