I am a Lecturer on the BSc Professional Policing course and a serving Sergeant with the British Transport Police Special Constabulary.


I am a serving Sergeant with British Transport Police Special Constabulary and have been a police officer for 4 years now. I studied BSc Criminology at the University of Gloucestershire before completing my Masters degree in International Security at the University of Bath. I have a background in response and community policing having previously worked full time as coordinator for the Aston Project in Tewkesbury, a Gloucestershire Police and Tewkesbury Borough Council joint initiative to divert young people away from the criminal justice system. I joined the policing team here in September 2019 after finishing my postgraduate studies.
