Paul was a young man and his death is a tragedy, but I know that Lindsey, his daughter Ella, and his family, will find some comfort in knowing that Paul is now at peace and his wishes have been honoured. Paul joined Merseyside Police in 2004, following in his father's footsteps by choosing a career in policing after leaving the Army. He was 1st posting was in Wallasey between 2004 and 2007. From there Paul joined the Roads Policing Unit in 2007, where he quickly became a valued member of the team. Paul dedicated his career to protecting the public and the force is flying the flag at half mast in his honour. Our thoughts and condolences are with Lindsey, Ella, his family, friends and colleagues."
