Temporary Assistant Chief ConstableACC Simon Shaw

Simon was a Design Engineer before he joined South Yorkshire Police. There he was awarded the Association of Chief Officers Baton of Honour in recognition of the exceptionally high marks he achieved in police examinations. In 1989 he transferred to North Wales Police and was initially posted to serve as the resident ‘village bobby’ for Bwlchgwyn.


In recent years Simon has served as the Head of HR for the Force, Head of Roads Policing and Firearms Operations, Head of the Force Control Room, Head of Crime Services and Head of Local Policing Services. Simon has a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Bangor University.


Two years ago Simon bought an old narrow boat. So when he is not working, the sun is shining (and he can get the engine going!) Simon can be found crashing his boat along the Shropshire Union Canal.



As Temporary ACC, Simon is responsible for Local Policing Services and leads on all Crime issues for the Force.
