I myself attended Chaddlewood Primary School, have lived in the local area for over 30 years and now have a child attending the school, so am aware of the important role the school plays within the community and the excellent start it provides for local children. I have spent the last 15 working in a civilian role for the police within the communications department, and have been involved in setting up and utilising new technologies to help improve and enhance services. The Police Service in this area is very focused on safeguarding and protecting our communities and I have a wide range of experience and knowledge, from a policing perspective in this area.
