St Peter’s is delighted to report that Matt Jukes (1992, Mathematics) has recently been appointed by Rt Hon Alun Michael, Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales, as Chief Constable of South Wales Police from 1 January 2018.

The decision was subject to scrutiny by the Police and Crime Panel for South Wales, which confirmed the appointment on 8 September.

The need to appoint a new Chief Constable follows the announcement by the current Chief Constable, Peter Vaughan QPM, of his intention to retire at the end of December.

Matt joined the police service in 1995 and became Deputy Chief Constable of South Wales Police in August 2013. He served with South Yorkshire Police for 15 years in a range of roles including several concerned with crime and intelligence. During this time, Matt worked with the forerunner of National Counter Terrorism (CT) Policing. His last role in South Yorkshire was as a Divisional Commander in local policing.

Matt joined South Wales Police in 2010 as Assistant Chief Constable of Specialist Crime, responsible for all specialist crime matters including major crime investigation, intelligence, public protection, and covert operations.
