South Wales Police Chief Constable joins USW

University of South Wales, Treforest Campus

The Chief Constable of South Wales Police, Peter Vaughan QPM, will join the University of South Wales (USW) when he retires from the police service at the end of the year.

He will take up the role of Professor and Director of the International Centre for Policing and Security.

The Centre has an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally for its undergraduate and postgraduate courses in police sciences, community and partnerships, and international policing, as well as its teaching and research facilities.

Mr Vaughan will be overseeing an experienced group of police researchers, academics and practitioners at the Centre as well as leading the University’s partnership development with police forces across Wales and the UK.

Mr Vaughan said: “I am thrilled to be taking up the new role with USW. I wasn’t ready to end my connection with policing and public service and see this as a real opportunity to continue that work.  The International Centre for Policing and Security has a superb reputation and am looking forward to working with the great staff and students.” 

Martin Steggall, Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Education at USW, said: “We look forward to welcoming Peter into the University of South Wales at the end of the year.

“The vast experience that he has gained during the past 33 years working in the police service will add to the first-class reputation we already have at the University for our International Centre for Policing and Security providing teaching and research that reflects the modern-day policing environment.”
