I spent my early years in Plymouth before my parents moved to Bristol; where, hoping to become a Forensic Scientist, I spent a year studying for a BSc in Chemistry. However, following an attachment to the Bristol City force I joined up and served on patrol on two divisions in the City. Following the amalgamation of Bristol into the Avon and Somerset Police area I became a Communications operator for a spell before returning to Patrol duties as a Sergeant and later as an Inspector in the control room; before becoming part of the Communications Department Planning and Technical support team.
