Former police officer joins MiX Telematics to develop Blue Light services offering

The role will see Peel work to further develop the use and application of telematics solutions by emergency services organisations nationwide. 

"We are delighted that Robert has elected to join our team," said Steve Coffin, marketing and operations director for MiX Telematics Europe. 

"We have long been an active player within the Blue Light sector and the experience and knowledge Robert now brings to us will help us further develop our offer in order to serve these essential services even better."

Peel joined the former Surrey Constabulary, which later became Surrey Police, in January 1971 and was there until 2002.  During that time he specialised in the more technical side of traffic policing, collision investigation, vehicle and tachograph examination. 

In 2004 Robert was approached by the head of the Surrey Police Collision Unit and asked to go back to help set up a project to fit all Surrey Police Vehicles with data recorders, which saw him work with MiX Telematics and help achieve a reduction in the incident rate for that division over a fairly short period of time.
