About our speakers:

Gareth Wilson, Suffolk Constabulary's Chief Constable.

Gareth joined Suffolk Constabulary in July 2014 in the role of Deputy Chief Constable and was appointed as Chief Constable for Suffolk in January 2016, after an 11 month term as temporary chief. Prior to this Gareth was Assistant Chief Constable at Norfolk Constabulary, serving as the collaborative lead for Protective Services in Norfolk and Suffolk, overseeing the delivery of serious and organised crime, intelligence, major investigation, forensics and specialist operations along with Criminal Justice and Royalty Protection.

Gareth joined Norfolk Constabulary in 2012, having previously served with Essex Police since 1989 where he spent his 23 years in a mix of both CID and uniformed roles including a significant period of time as a Senior Investigating Officer and finally as the Detective Chief Superintendent for the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate. Gareth chairs the National Police Chief’s Council Committee on Equality, Diversity and Human Rights, and is also the national lead for Investigations. Regionally, Gareth is the lead Chief Constable for the seven force collaboration programme and the lead for Disaster Victim Identification.

Gareth has completed a degree from the University of Essex, a Post Graduate Certificate in Business Excellence from the University of Leeds, a Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Criminology and Police Management from Cambridge University and a Master’s Degree in Public Enterprise and Management from the University of Essex. In his spare time Gareth and his family enjoys riding their two horses and walking their five dogs.
