East Midlands Representative

Detective Superintendent Jackie Alexander has 28 years police service having joined Nottinghamshire Police as a graduate in 1989. She gained an MA in Police and Organisational Management from the University of Manchester in 1994, and it was while researching the impact of gender on the lateral and vertical career opportunities of male and female officers as part of her thesis that Jackie first became involved in BAWP. Jackie is now studying for a Professional Doctorate with the University of Portsmouth, and is revisiting her previous gender research with a more longitudinal study.

Jackie's postings have included both uniform and CID, as well as HR; quality assurance; and Regional Collaboration. She was promoted to Detective Superintendent in 2003 and spent six years heading up Public Protection for Nottinghamshire Police, followed by a posting as a Deputy Divisional Commander where she enjoyed the challenge of being responsible for the operational performance of a large policing area. 

For the next six years Jackie headed up the Nottinghamshire Police Professional Standards Directorate, leading the Force's Complaints and
Misconduct; Anti-Corruption; and Vetting and Information Security Units; and has been involved nationally in work around identifying and tackling the issue of abuse of authority for the purposes of sexual exploitation.

Currently seconded to the College of Policing, Jackie now works closely with policing partners such as the Home Office and leads nationally on work around police integrity and ethics.

Jackie is a committee member of the British Association of Women in Policing and is a founder member of her own force's women's network.

She is married to a now retired officer and has two teenage sons.
