Trevor Hall, Road Safety Support’s Managing Director, is one of the world’s leading experts on the development and operation of police enforcement technology and has managed wide a range of road safety initiatives, partnerships and organisations. Each of these has contributed significantly to the reduction in UK road casualty figures, which are now among the lowest in the world.
During the 1990s, he became an advisor to the Association of Chief Police Officers’ (ACPO) Traffic Enforcement Technology Committee. In this role he advised private sector speed camera providers over Home Office Type Approval issues. Trevor was involved in establishing one of the UK’s first safety camera partnerships in 1999.
This all led to him managing the ACPO/Home Office Roads Policing Enforcement Technology Committee with the responsibility of working with private sector enforcement technology providers seeking to gain Home Office Type Approval for their technologies.
In 2006, he took on the additional role of coordinating the UK’s safer roads partnerships on behalf of ACPO, dealing with chief police officers, politicians and senior officials from the various UK Government departments.
In 2007, following his retirement from the police, Trevor set up and became the Managing Director of Road Safety Support (RSS). It was established to provide a range of support to safer roads partnerships, police and highway authorities in their casualty reduction efforts. RSS is also a recognised IQ training centre which has the ability to deliver international road safety and Police formal qualification training.
In 2011, Trevor was invited to become a special advisor to the US National Highway Safety Committee (HSC). In this role he provides advice on all US police and road safety issues to the committee, which is run under the International Association of Chief Police Officers (IACP). In 2015, he was co-opted onto the HSC as a full voting member. Trevor is now advising the IACP, HSC and the US National Transport Safety Administration (NHTSA) on a review on the approval process for Police Enforcement Technology in the US.
In 2012, Trevor was involved in developing road safety projects with supporting partners with both the Kyrgyzstan and Moldovan governments. A year later he became involved in the RS10 Road Safety Project in conjunction with the Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Global Road Safety Partnership, which has seen him deliver road safety workshops in both Turkey and Russia.
Since 2013 Trevor, as a director of a UK road safety charity, Roadsafe, working with Prince Michael of Kent, represents Roadsafe on the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration Committee.
