Paul Jones

Senior Consultant

Paul brings a breadth of law enforcement and security experience to Noetic.

Paul Jones is a former member of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) who departed after a decade as a Detective Superintendent with a total of over 25 years’ service. Paul has extensive counter-terrorism experience, a result of his involvement in policy development and operations at both an operational and tactical level in a range of specialist fields. This includes performing the role of Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee (ANZCTC) Capability Adviser – Dignitary Protection and a member of the writing team for the first National Counter-Terrorism Handbook. Paul was the AFP Coordinator for G20 in Brisbane in 2014 where he had responsibility for the planning, briefing, coordination and budget, for the AFP organizational response with a particular focus on the Leaders’ Summit.

The skills Paul brings to the Noetic team extend beyond his policing experience.  Paul has been out-posted or seconded from the AFP to a number of other departments during his career, including the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and the Centre of Excellence in Policing and Security. This experience has reinforced Paul’s skills in operating effectively in an interagency environment. Paul sees the opportunity to transfer these skills into other areas, which is what attracted him to Noetic. “Noetic can deliver a wealth of individual and team expertise to bring real value to clients”.
