Colin is a Detective Chief Superintendent and currently the Head of Professional Standards for Thames Valley Police. He has worked across a range of roles in policing including being head of CID, head of Protecting Vulnerable People and a Local Police Area Commander. He has a first in Philosophy and Theology from Oxford where he studied from 96 to 99 and more recently has an MSt in Criminology from Cambridge where he studied from 2010-11.
Colin developed ME in 2017. After a considerable period of being housebound and unable to work, he has returned to work gradually and built back up to working full time – albeit he has to continue to manage his health carefully as he discusses here.
Colin passionately believes that there is the promise of hope for those suffering with ME, which is why he is delighted to be part of board for the ME Trust.
