Simon Hallam Sergeant

I began my career with West Mercia Police in 1998 and have been involved in frontline policing ever since. Having worked within the response role initially as a PC within the Malvern area, I was promoted to Sergeant during this posting. I have subsequently worked as a Custody Sergeant within the busy cell block at Worcester Police Station and on completion of this posting I spent two years working within the South Worcestershire Operational Response Unit having responsibility for firearm response and serious road traffic collision matters.

I moved to the arena of Safer Neighbourhood Policing at Warndon, Worcester in June 2015 following a five year spell on patrol duties within Evesham. Having spent almost three years in post having responsibilities for some of the challenging areas of higher need within East Worcester I have now moved back to where I began my career. I look forward to tackling the new challenges of rural policing within the Malvern Hills District.
