Assistant Chief Constable Terry Woods

I feel immensely privileged to be Assistant Chief Constable of Territorial Operations responsible for Policing services delivered in all Lancashire’s Territorial Policing Divisions (East, South and West) and the Control Room at HQ. Key aspects of my work involve local policing, contact management, response and local investigations.
I also lead nationally for the Police Service for Onshore Gas and Oil Exploration.

I have always been very proud of my vocation as a Police Officer and had been fortunate to have enjoyed a wide and varied career serving the public across many areas in Lancashire including Burnley, Blackburn, Preston and Blackpool. I have served on a number of Departments including Response, Road Policing & Motorway, Operational Support Unit, Child Sexual Exploitation Teams, Neighbourhood and Change Management.


I am an accredited Strategic Firearms, CBRN, Public Order and Multi Agency Commander and have commanded many large scale operations over a number of years including firearms and counter terrorism operations, civil emergencies including flooding, demonstrations, football matches and security operations.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy relaxing with my family and playing and watching as many sports as possible.

I'm passionate and committed to ensuring that Lancashire Constabulary deliver excellent services in order that we can best protect the public, particularly those who are vulnerable.
