|Biography:||Roger Oakley has lived and worked in Sussex for about 40 years. He is a family man and brought up his family in and around Worthing. Roger served as a Sussex police officer for 30 years and for 15 of those years he was employed at Worthing.
Whilst in the police service he was involved in the monitoring and control of liquor licensing. He was also engaged in police work that involved drugs, gambling, vice, pornography, and immigration. His work also engaged him in operations with Trading Standards.
When Roger retired from the police force some 13 years ago he returned to college, gained an accountancy qualification and was employed in various accountancy roles in Worthing offices including HMRC. Now, Roger works for Network Rail Operations as a Railway Signaller though he is currently negotiating his retirement.
During the last 15 years, Roger has cared for three members of his family who all succumbed to dementia. This brought him into regular contact with various agencies involved with care of the elderly including the local Social Services. He has therefore further developed an interest in the various caring services that he first met as a police officer.
Roger has also been a councillor with Worthing Borough for the last six years. He is on the Licensing Committee and is Vice-Chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee. His favourite subject is highways and parking and he regards himself as having a broad knowledge and understanding of the subject.
