Having previously been a police officer for 22 years in Humberside police, i am retired and joined Hull University as a lecturer on the Degree in Professional Policing.

I have extensive experience in policing, especially in the areas of front line policing and the training of police officers in line with new PEQF framework. This can be supported in my previous role for six and half years training and teaching new student police officers on PCDA/DHEP programs

I have interest in hate crime, gender and policing especially violence and Domestic abuse , counter-terrorism( PREVENT), trafficking, modern day slavery and the policing of vulnerability and domestic abuse, this is cemented by nationally accredited training delivery for both Vulnerability and Domestic abuse.

In the last 4 years i have achieved my level 7 as Master of Education and 1st class Hons in BA of education and Professional development.

I have a teaching qualification from my previous role but will be looking to enhance my career aspirations and enrolling on a university led teaching program such as DARTE in order to achieve Fellowship status.

Research interests

I have a valid interest in the research of education in policing .

I would like to research further into DA related material and also increasing public confidence in policing.
