West Mids Chief awarded honorary doctorate

Chief Constable Sir David Thompson was awarded an honorary doctorate from Staffordshire University.

Sir David Thompson has been awarded an honorary doctorate from Staffordshire University in recognition of his work within policing.

West Midlands is one of four forces using the university for the delivery of the academic side of their PEQF programme.

Sir David, who is retiring next month, said: “As I enter the final weeks of my policing career, I’m enormously proud and privileged to receive this honorary doctorate from Staffordshire University.

“The University is an outstanding organisation that has played a key role in training over 2,000 officers from the wider West Midlands region over the past few years, making this recognition all the more special.

“As I leave policing after a career of 32 years, I remain strongly of the view that it is one of the most important and transformative institutions in the society of Britain.

“I hope and believe I have made a difference to people in our communities in all the roles I have held throughout my career.

“I remind all those who will continue in policing after I am gone of their unique power to do the same.”
