After more than 30 years service as a Police Officer in South Yorkshire, I retired in 2013. During my Police career I have been involved with investigations of every kind, from shoplifting to murder. About 17 years ago my career to a dramatic turn when I was deliberately run down by a fleeing criminal. although I received life threatening injuries, I returned to work after several months, albeit in a very different role. I became the link between the Police, schools and colleges, eventually becoming the Police Advisor to many educational establishments. I remained in this role until the end of my career. My work attracted many awards over the years, culminating in my receiving the 'Lifetime achievement in Policing' award in 2009.
In the year 2000 I was seconded to work with the United Nations international Police Taskforce in Bosnia. This was a 12 month mission and I remain the only British Police Officer to return having been awarded 4 medaLS.
