New Chief Field Officer at the ILPH

Paul Teasdale, Field Officer for the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) in the West Midlands, has recently been appointed Chief Field Officer at the equine welfare charity.

He has taken over the reins from Norman Brown who is standing down from the post to continue as a Field Officer in a part time capacity.

Paul joined the ILPH in 1997 when he retired from the Police force. During his time in the Mounted Branch he served in every rank from Constable upwards and in the latter stages of his career was Chief Inspector of the Greater Manchester Mounted Police, the largest provincial mounted branch in the country.

The culmination of his career in the service was as the Home Office adviser to assist Her Majesty's Inspectorate during mounted branch inspections.

Comments Paul, "I am delighted to be taking over from Norman who will be a hard act to follow. I welcome the new animal welfare legislation proposed by the Government and look forward to implementing it with the help of a very professional and experienced team of Field Officers.

"I sincerely hope that once the new legislation is on the statute books it will enable us to step in to help horses and ponies before they have to endure the intolerable levels of abuse and neglect they suffer at the moment because of the inadequacy of the present law."
