Sir Paul Scott-Lee QPM DL


Sir Paul had nearly forty years of policing experience. He joined the Warwickshire and Coventry Constabulary and subsequently served in West Midlands, Northamptonshire, Kent and Suffolk. He is the former Chief Constable of both Suffolk and latterly West Midlands.

As one of the senior leaders of the Police Service Sir Paul has worked closely with Government and Local Authorities. He served as a member of the Governmental National Counter-Terrorism Board and was Vice President of the Association of Chief Police Officers. Sir Paul sat as an independent Assessor supporting Lord Justice Leveson in the Inquiry into the culture, practice and ethics of the press.

Sir Paul was delighted to be asked to become a Trustee to help raise money to enable a Memorial to be created at the National Arboretum, a setting that has grown in importance and significance in recent years. Of the UK Police Memorial Trust, Paul says:

“The country, as well as the Police Family, needs a fitting memorial to honour those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. I am pleased to be part of a charity that will make this a reality.”
