Olivia is the chair of the National Police Coordination Committee for Local Policing, the national lead for the Policing of Children and Young People and the national chaplaincy lead for the police service.

Olivia began her policing career with Avon and Somerset Constabulary. She later served as assistant chief constable for Surrey and Sussex forces before being appointed deputy chief constable at Sussex. In 2013, Olivia was appointed assistant inspector of constabulary with Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, independently reporting on the effectiveness and efficiency of all police forces in England and Wales. Outside of work, Olivia is a keen sports-watching mum, and enthusiastically joins in with many outdoor activities.

The coordination committee and its portfolios aim to enhance public confidence in the fairness and effectiveness of the police and criminal justice system. It is working to develop partnerships within communities and accredited authorities.
