I am a DCI in West Yorkshire Police currently working as the Deputy Force Authorising Officer managing a range of covert teams. I am an accredited Major Crime Senior Investigating Officer and a Kidnap SIO. Although I am a passionate and experienced Detective I also have vast experience in Operational Support Policing, especially Public Order policing and am a Silver Public Order Commander. Prior to transferring to WYP in 2018 I spent 16 years in the Police Service of Northern Ireland where I honed by public order skills in a number of large scale riots.
Outside of policing my husband is a Detective Inspector and we have 5 young children so I am well accustomed to juggling work and home life trying to get the balance right!
