Team leaders

Sergeant 1501 Richard Thomas

I joined West Midlands Police in 1997, and worked on the neighbourhood Policing team and the response teams within the Solihull areas. I also spent some time on a pain clothes vehicle team and trained in the use of covert surveillance. I transferred to Warwickshire Police in 2001 and worked on a uniformed response team based at Stratford. In 2003 I joined the SNT team at Stratford. In 2005 I was promoted and worked at Leamington spa in the role of custody Sergeant in the Custody Suite. In 2009 I came back to Stratford and worked as a reactive Police Sergeant. I have now taken the SNT sergeants role covering, Stratford, Wellesbourne and Southam areas. My teams are each covered by a beat manager, PCSO’s and Special Constables who address community issues. In my spare time I enjoy mountain walking which I have done in Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons.

I have been employed by Warwickshire Police since 1996 & as a PCSO since July 2004. I was initially posted to Alcester Police station as a member of the Alcester South SNT for 7 years mainly working within the communities of Bidford on Avon, Welford, Salford Priors, and many other nearby villages. In April 2011 due to organisational change I was transferred to work in Stratford town for a year and since July 2012 I have been working on a rural patch once again as part of the Wellesbourne SNT.
