Superintendent for Herefordshire - Sue Thomas
The Head of Policing in Herefordshire is Sue Thomas. She was appointed to this role in April 2014.
I am Superintendent Sue Thomas, the Local Policing Commander for Herefordshire. My policing experience has always been with West Mercia Police and I have worked in a variety of roles across the Force area both operationally and at an organisational level.
I have had much experience in delivering local policing in Herefordshire and I have previously held the Response policing and Local policing portfolios as a Chief Inspector in the County. This has given me experience of working with the people of Herefordshire and developing strong partnerships to work together in solving problems. I have also had key roles in supporting the Force to deal with threats both as a tactical firearms commander and public order commander.
My most recent experiences have been at a Force level overseeing the Operations and Communications Centre - leading the response to calls for service from the outset to address threat, harm and risk. Before my return to Herefordshire in April 2014, I held the role of the Continuous Improvement Manager for Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police as part of our strategic alliance. This was an opportunity to work with my colleagues to improve our performance and look at how we can do things differently and better in order to respond to the challenges facing the Police Service.
