Simon Bailey CBE QPM DL was a police officer for 35 years, the last eight as the Chief Constable of Norfolk Constabulary. Simon was also the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) lead for child protection, during which time he led the law enforcement response to online threats and the investigation of non-recent child sexual exploitation.
Since retiring as a police officer in 2021, he has continued to pursue his passion for safeguarding and has a wide-ranging portfolio of responsibilities in the child protection arena.
