Gavin Thomas, OBE
Having retired from the Police service as a Detective Chief Superintendent and President of the Police Superintendents Association, I joined Ethos VO as a partner and subsequently Team Police Ltd as a Board member.
I retired from the Police service in 2019, having led The Police Superintendents Association for England and Wales, representing all Superintendents and Chief Superintendents. One of the areas that caused me the greatest concern was the resilience and wellbeing of colleagues delivering critical services to the public, as evidenced in a series of national surveys the Association had conducted. What is clearly evident for both good mental and physical health is taking part in some form of physical activity or sport. Joining Team Police has been a natural fit for me in continuing to support everyone in the whole policing family.
