University welcomes new police liaison officer

PC Matt Guy will be taking over as the University's police liaison officer for the next academic year.

PC Matt Guy

Matt's career in the police has so far been community focused - his passion lying in working with young people on crime prevention initiatives, turning young offenders away from crime and engaging them in positive activities.

PC Guy attended the University of Sheffield where he studied for a degree in Law and Criminology and went on to achieve a Masters in International Criminology.  He took on a number of roles from Residential Social Worker to climbing shop manager before becoming a police officer eight years ago, to make a difference, get involved and in his own words: ‘stick up for people who could do with some support’.

Matt said of his new role here at the University: ‘I'm truly excited about working at the university with all the excellent staff I've met so far and am looking forward to all the students coming back in a month’s time.  My job is to help people with any problems they are having and to develop a better, safer and happier community for everyone.  I'm full of ideas and enthusiasm so expect to see me around a lot promoting our new schemes and events’.

You’ll find Matt walking around the University or at the University Security Office, so if you see him stop and have a chat as he is always available.
