I served in differing roles, Responce Officer, Detective, Police Trainer, Shift Sergeant, Custody Sergeant and Performance & Development Sergeant being reponsible for all student officer development and their training. Now with the University, I lecture on a variety of different modules and draw from the experiences I have encountered and enjoy being involved in the development of students.
