Contact Details


Angi joined the University of Worcester in October 2021. Before this, she worked as a Police Investigative Skills and Interviewing trainer with West Mercia Police. During her time at West Mercia Police, she designed, delivered and co-ordinated the training for the College of Policing accreditation of detectives (all ranks) across West Mercia and Warwickshire police forces. In addition to this, Angi specialised in County Lines, Serious and Complex Interviewing, Domestic Violence and Abuse, Professional Curiosity and The Management of Serious and Complex Investigations.

She also served with Kent Police for 13 years and achieved the rank of Detective Sergeant, with an operational career predominantly based within the Criminal Investigation Department and associated specialist units in one of the busiest police areas in the UK.

During her police service, Angi experienced working on Major Investigation Teams and discovered a passion for investigating and interviewing witnesses and suspects for the most serious crimes committed against our most vulnerable members of society. She also worked as a Custody Sergeant, having responsibility for some extremely vulnerable detainees.

Angi is an experienced teacher, having taught English as a foreign language in Germany and as a Primary School teacher, working in several settings. She completed her PCGE here at the University of Worcester, so has a unique insight into student life at this university.

She is excited to bring her experience and passion for policing to the University of Worcester and expects her lectures to be insightful, interactive, ‘down to earth’ and evidence-based.
