District Commander update

I joined Essex Police in December 1986 and was first posted to Tilbury.

I then served at Grays on Response teams for a number of years and as a neighbourhood beat officer, before being promoted to Sergeant at Southend. Whilst at Southend, I was seconded to the Metropolitan Police, stationed at Forest Gate.

Upon my return to Essex, I continued to serve at Leigh on Sea, then transferred to Chelmsford, where I performed a number of operational roles and was asked to establish the Melbourne Neighbourhood Policing Team.

On promotion to Inspector I served on response teams, then became the Chelmsford town section Inspector. Following this, I was promoted to Chief Inspector as the District Commander for Chelmsford.  I was then posted to the Strategic Change Management Unit at Essex Police Headquarters.

I have a real passion for neighbourhood policing and I am a strong believer in working closely with partners to find solutions. Early intervention is key to keep crime and anti-social behaviour at a minimum. My first priority is crime reduction and ensuring the public feel well-served.

There has been some fantastic work in the Castle Point and Rochford districts and I am extremely keen to develop this further in the new single district. Over the next few months, I will be having a thorough handover from the current District Commanders and will be meeting with partners. I look forward to working with you all.
