He served the last two years of his career as a Chief Superintendent and Divisional Commander of Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot.

He has also planned and overseen many large act pop concerts, music events, and large scale protest marches.
In 2014, he was selected as the Cardiff Operational Commander for the International NATO Conference at the Celtic Manor, which was attended by world leaders including US President Barack Obama. As such, he had operational responsibility for the development and implementation of the plans for the event, which involved 10,000 police officers.
