I feel immensely privileged and proud to be the Deputy Chief Constable in Lancashire Constabulary. 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.
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 Specialist 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.
I also lead nationally for the Police Service on Police Driver Training and also for Onshore Gas and Oil Exploration.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy relaxing with my family and playing and watching as many sports as possible.
