I spent 22 years in the Police Service in the UK in various investigation roles, the last 5 years of my service having been spent in Crime Intelligence providing an intelligence capability to a number of high-profile serious crimes. It seemed to me to be a natural progression to utilise the knowledge, skills and experience acquired over many years of Policing; by entering the commercial world.
During my time in the police service I have undergone many years of training in all aspects of Criminal Law, Investigative Interviewing Techniques, Tape Recorded P.A.C.E. Interviews, Evidence Gathering, Case File Preparation, Presentation of Evidence at Court, Crime Scene Investigation, Surveillance & Observations, Criminal Intelligence Work, Crime Intelligence Analysis, National Intelligence Model and Intelligence-Led Policing. I have studied Criminology at Undergraduate level in addition to having qualifications in Leadership & Management. For the past 10 years or so, on a formal and also an informal basis, I have been studying Psychology (Criminal & Investigative) and Nuero Linguistic Programming (NLP).
Having a huge interest in IT, after leaving the police service in 2003 I returned to adult education and obtained a CompTIA A+ qualification as a computer hardware and software technician. Although I never had any plans to use the qualification commercially I am now able to maintain my own IT systems.
For the past 6 years or more I have been the owner of a Corporate Investigations & Legal Services Agency providing Professional Investigator, Commercial Detective, Information and Intelligence gathering services to Corporate Entities, Businesses and Law Firms. I strongly believe in having a hands-on personal approach to the services that I provide. My aim is to develop a long, lasting and mutually beneficial partnership with every client, I am therefore always available to personally take care of the needs of every client.
