Skills Summary and Objective

I am a retired Police Officer having served 32 years with West Mercia Police. The last 8 years of service was spent as a motorway officer with the Central Motorway Police Group. I am currently employed by West Mercia as an Advanced Driver Trainer. As an ex-police officer, I am a professional, discreet, smart, punctual, honest and trustworthy person. I believe I am an excellent communicator, competent, conscientious and motivated; I can work well alone, but am equally able and happy to be part of a team.

As part of my role I am qualified to teach advanced driving, skid training, emergency response, 4×4 off road training and towing. On behalf of West Mercia I also instruct outside agencies in advanced driving techniques.
