Kerrin Wilson QPM

Senior Associate Fellow

Kerrin’s career in the police has spanned 30 years including almost five years as an Assistant Chief Constable with Lincolnshire Police. Kerrin worked in CID, in uniform and in specialist roles which included over 20 years as a hostage negotiator and a 12-month secondment with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Iraq. As a senior police officer Kerrin held two NPCC portfolios: Professionalising Investigations and Progression and Leadership under the Race, Religion and Belief portfolio. Within the latter portfolio she worked alongside others to develop the Women of Colour Policing Network and the ‘Future Supers’ programme, aimed at developing career progression opportunities for minority police officers. 

Since retiring from policing Kerrin has devoted her time to a number of non-executive director roles including committee membership of the Cumberland Lodge Policing Conference and associate membership of the College of Policing. She is also a recruitment specialist for the Judicial Appointments Commission.  

In 2021 Kerrin was awarded the Queens Policing Medal for services to policing and diversity.
