Ch Insp Faz Chishty

I've been with Warwickshire Police for 24 years now. I joined the force aged 19 in 1994 as a police constable and I have never looked back. I was drawn to policing from an early age, as my older brother was an officer. I was fascinated by his experiences, and the more I learned, the more my desire to join the service developed.

Being within the service has surpassed my expectations and I have thoroughly enjoyed the time I have worked across Warwickshire. I have had the privilege to work in a variety of different roles, both in and out of uniform, which has allowed me to help people, something which is close to my heart. I have always been encouraged and supported in my career, which has allowed me to progress through the ranks. 

The best thing about working for Warwickshire Police is that we have a strong family feel and I would encourage people to become part of our family.

I am a Direct Entry Inspector in Warwickshire Police. I was a PCSO with Northumbria Police and absolutely loved the job. However, I was ready for a new challenge. With my continued passion for working in the police alongside my previous careers as a paralegal and teacher, I decided to apply for Direct Entry Inspector and successfully joined Warwickshire Police in October 2017.

Warwickshire has been an extremely welcoming force and they have made it easy for me to settle in and become part of their policing family. The force is small, providing a personal feel within the organisation, but it is still bursting with police activity at every level. It is great to come to work and know you will experience new challenges everyday. If you have a passion for protecting the public and serving communities, then policing is the job that provides it all.
