Help­ing po­lice

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE - JC RE­PORTER

METROPOLI­TAN PO­LICE in­spec­tor Mat Shaer is the new chair of the Jewish Po­lice As­so­ci­a­tion.

In­spec­tor Shaer wants to raise the profile of the as­so­ci­a­tion within the force and the wider com­mu­nity and make po­ten­tial mem­bers feel “they have some­thing to gain from be­long­ing, whether from sup­port, net­work­ing or so­cial­is­ing”. He is par­tic­u­larly keen to at­tract of­fi­cers and civil­ian staff from other forces.

He trans­ferred to the Met in 2003 af­ter 10 years in Thames Val­ley force.

The in­spec­tor worked on the Met’s mur­der squad be­fore be­ing pro­moted to take charge of crim­i­nal jus­tice and case-pro­gres­sion units in West­min­ster.

Orig­i­nally from East Lon­don, he now lives in Ox­ford­shire with his wife and three daugh­ters.

In­spec­tor Shaer be­longs to Maiden­head Syn­a­gogue, whose min­is­ter, Rabbi Dr Jonathan Ro­main, is a JPA chap­lain.
