Peter Neyroud joined Hampshire Constabulary in 1980 after reading History at Oxford. After working in uniform and as a detective in Hampshire and then as an Assistant Chief and Deputy in West Mercia, he became the Chief Constable of Thames Valley in 2002 and a Vice-President of the Association of Chief Police Officers in 2005. He moved to the Home Office in 2006 to set up the National Policing Improvement Agency and was the Chief Constable and Chief Executive until 2010. He was also a member of the Sentencing Guidelines Council, Parole Board, National Policing Board and National Criminal Justice. Before retiring from the police in 2010, he completed a “fundamental review of Police Leadership and Training” for the Home Secretary, which was published in April 2011 and proposed radical change to the training and development of police officers and the establishment of a new professional body for policing. Since leaving the Police Service at the end of 2010 he has set up his own professional research consultancy, is directing a major research programme at Cambridge University into Crime Harm and is providing training, leadership development and consultancy nationally and internationally. He is also a widely published author of books, articles and papers on policing and Editor of the Oxford Journal of Policing and Associate Editor of the Springer Encyclopedia of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
