Sir Denis O’Connor CBE QPM
Sir Denis retired as Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary on 30th September 2012. Following the publication in September 2010 of Stop the Rot, the HMIC Report that examined the effects of anti-social behaviour and yobbish behaviour on UK streets, he has an up-to-the-minute understanding of the need for the intervention programmes offered by KeepOut, capable of challenging and changing behaviours amongst young people. He has now been appointed Sir Leon Radzinowicz Fellow at the Institute of Criminology, Cambridge University and is a Visiting Professor at Portsmouth University. Before joining the Inspectorate, Sir Denis was Chief Constable of Surrey between 2000 and 2004, and Assistant Chief Constable in the county from 1991-94, joining Kent Police as Deputy Chief Contable in 1994. In 1997 he joined the Metropolitan Police as Assistant Commissioner. That means he has a working knowledge of KeepOut and the programmes we run in Surrey prisons with young people on the cusp of crime. In 1997, Sir Denis was appointed Assistant Commissioner in the Metropolitan Police, where he led the Met’s development strategy following the Stephen Lawrence Enquiry.
