Che Donald

Crime & Misconduct Caseworker

Che is a former police sergeant of 21 years, most notably serving seven years as the National Vice Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW), the national representative body for all frontline police officers from Constable to Chief Inspector, with just over 140,000 members.

In this time Che helped develop the Post incident Procedure (PIP) training programme for PFEW representatives, including re-accreditation. Leading nationally for the organisation in the specialisms of Firearms, Conductive Energy Devices and Post Incident Procedures, he was instrumental in achieving approval for officers with Colour Vison Deficiency to be authorised to carry Taser.

He has also contributed to the College of Policing’s Authorised Professional Practice on Deaths following serious injury and PIP, along with representing police officers involved in the PIP process for over 10 years, which includes representation at gross misconduct hearings, criminal court, and coroner’s court.

Che created and facilitated the National PIP Seminar’s, which accredits all practitioners in this area with CPD and provides a learning environment to improve knowledge and understanding in this complex process.

Having represented police officers for most of his service, in areas of Misconduct, Performance, Attendance and Equality, he brings a wealth of experience to Taylor Haldane Barlex as a Crime and Misconduct Case Worker. Whatever the needs of the client, they can be assured of sound advice and representation in their best interests, built on knowledge and experience from being a professional in the criminal justice system for over twenty years.

Based in Lancashire, his passions include being a devoted Springbok supporter, artisan gin maker and not losing golf balls.
