Nick is an experienced former Merseyside Police Sergeant who led the Police team at North Liverpool Community Justice Centre from 2010-2014. Here he worked closely with a variety of agencies including Mersey Care NHS as part of multi-agency partnership to identify and improve the support available to service users and those with mental ill-health, who found themselves in the Criminal Justice System as offender, victim or witness.

Nick has worked extensively with colleagues from Witness Service and Victim Support. He has previously travelled to Oslo to study the impact of Restorative Justice in the Norwegian Judicial System and was granted a rare privilege to visit a halfway house where offenders worked closely with a local community as part of their rehabilitation.

Nick studied at LJMU from 2010, progressing from the Policing Studies Foundation Degree to a First Class BA (Hons).

He was awarded a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in August 2016.

Alongside his teaching role, Nick works with students at LJMU to prepare them for police officer, police staff and special constable interviews.
