“Adrian, during all steps of the recruitment process, demonstrated in-depth knowledge, experience and ability and we are confident he will be a strong addition to the Force.”
Adrian is currently a Commander with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) serving as Head of Crime and Criminal Justice.
He was the operational commander for the MPS Safer Transport Command and Roads Policing and has extensive experience delivering a policing service in a transport and business environment.
As Commander he has also led major programmes for the MPS including the roll out of body worn video, crime data integrity, performance improvements and stop and search. Earlier in his service Adrian was Borough Commander for Enfield and Staff Officer for the Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson.
