What’s your role within the Federation?
“I’m the Deputy Conduct and Performance Liaison Officer. I’m in my fourth year as a Fed Rep, but I’ve been a police officer for 18 years.”
Why did you take on the Fed Rep role?
“It was after the Jo Cox incident [Craig tackled and arrested Thomas Mair moments after Mair fatally stabbed MP Jo Cox; Craig later received a Queen’s Gallantry Medal along with colleague PC Jonathan Wright]. It was a way of paying back the support I received from the police family, and the fact that Federation Vice-Chairman Craig Grandison had come to see us on the day that it all happened. So I wanted to pay something back by giving my extra time to become a Rep.”
