From an early age former Kirklees College Public Services student Luke Raynor knew he wanted a career within the Police force and although the journey may have been somewhat challenging, he never let anything get in the way of his dreams.

Now a Police Community support officer based out of Dewsbury Police Station, Luke serves the communities of Saville Town, Thornhill Lees and the Thornhill area of Dewsbury providing reassurance, and ensuring people within these communities feel safe.

Luke was not naturally academic and found school hard due to his dyslexia. Despite these potential setbacks, he did not let this affect him and after finishing school, enrolled at Kirklees College. It was through the support of his Public Services tutors and the varied course structure that enabled him to fully understand and embrace the role of a police officer and set him on the path to move forward in his career choice.

After receiving a triple distinction, Luke enrolled on a Criminology course at the University of Huddersfield, attaining an impressive 2:1. After graduating Luke joined the West Yorkshire Police and is currently working towards becoming a police officer.

Luke said: “My time at Kirklees College enabled me to gain the foundation skills I needed to move forward with my career choice and it ultimately led to me enrolling at university.

“Without the support and commitment of the tutors and the attention and help they provided throughout the course, I might not be where I am today. I love my job and am looking forward to the exciting challenges it will bring in the future, as I work towards my goal to become a Police Officer.”
