5222 Paul Peters - 2018.jpg

Paul Peters

Director of The Cyber Resilience Centre for Wales

Paul has been a police officer for over 25 years spending most of his career as a detective. Paul joined the Metropolitan Police Force in April 1995, and over the next fourteen years he served on various units and boroughs. In 2009 Paul transferred to South Wales Police and was posted to the Major Crime Investigation Team where he took on the role of Senior Investigating Officer for murders and other serious and complex investigations.


In 2014 Paul transferred to Tarian, the Regional Organised Crime Unit that covers the three Southern Wales police forces where he was responsible for leading investigations by the Economic Crime and the fledgling Regional Cyber Crime Unit. During that time, Paul worked closely with businesses across Southern Wales to raise awareness of the cyber threat and secured funding from Welsh Government to implement Protect initiatives across Wales.


Paul also spearheaded a partnership collaboration to create a Cybercrime Prevent package involving education, awareness and law enforcement support across Wales.

Paul Hall

Head of Cyber and Innovation

Paul has been a police officer for 22 years and during that time has worked in various roles within policing. He joined South Wales Police in 1999 and has performed operational roles in Swansea, Port Talbot, Cynon Valley and Maesteg. Paul has experience of working in Criminal Investigation Departments, Proactive Drug Investigation teams as well as various uniformed roles. Paul is a qualified police search officer and, in that capacity, has worked on major events including the Olympics, NATO Wales Summit and the G7 Summit in Cornwall.


In 2017, Paul transferred to the Specialist Crime Division where he had responsibility for the technical surveillance capabilities for the force as well as overseeing covert policing operations and the acquisition of communication data to assist with major crime investigations.


Paul has a wealth of multi-agency partnership working experience from being seconded on the Welsh Government All Wales Arson reduction team and working with various partner agencies to reduce the impact of crime and disorder in the operational areas he has worked in.   


Paul understands that during his service he has seen significant changes to how crime has been committed. Cybercrime has now come to forefront and he’s keen to work in this area and with key partners to reduce the impact it can have on a victim. The head of cyber and innovation within the Cyber Resilience Centre for Wales is an exciting position for him, and he’s keen to transfer his previous policing experience into the new role.
