Julian joined the States of Jersey Police as the Deputy Chief Officer in July 2017. He began his Policing career at Suffolk Constabulary in 1984, serving in a number of Uniform and Detective roles.

Whilst Julian was the Chief Inspector responsible for Community Safety in 2005, he was accepted on the Home Office High Potential Development Scheme and thereafter joined Norfolk Constabulary, eventually being promoted to Detective Chief Superintendent. He has successfully led major criminal investigations and is proud to have built strong relationships between the Police and the community.

In 2011, Julian joined Staffordshire Police as the Assistant Chief Constable where he led operations, forged multi agency partnerships and ran a territorial Policing portfolio. He has a record for delivering year on year improvements in terms of performance, crime reduction, achieving budgetary savings and enhancing the quality of service to victims and witnesses in Staffordshire.

After 30 years in Policing, Julian used his expertise to advise the Ministry of Defence as a senior Civil Servant. He focussed on strategic Policing matters, thereby establishing an inspection programme for three Service Police Forces. It was in 2016 that he joined the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) as a Director, notably leading the largest criminal investigation into the Hillsborough disaster and heading up the IPCC’s response to terrorist incidents.

Despite having had a busy career, Julian secured a diploma in Criminology and Police Management from Cambridge University and previously attained an MSc in Criminal Justice from Leicester University. Julian enjoys staying active by cycling, walking and has played some rugby over the years.
