Work History

Work History
2007 - Present

Detective and Financial Investigator

Metropolitan Police Service

I am currently employed within a specialist unit focussing on Criminal Finance covering a substantial area of Central and North London.  My remit is to manage the most complex and challenging of money laundering fraud and asset recovery cases that often require national and international collaboration.

1993 - 2007

Police Constable/Detective Constable

Greater Manchester Police

During this time I began to specialise in the area of money laundering and Fraud whilst developing my investigation and enquiry skills. 

Like all police officers I began my service as a constable and worked my way steadily through a variety of roles that instilled a strong foundation of enquiry, observation and personal interaction.

I worked in a variety of settings including local policing; covert operations tacking burglary and drug offences; active involvement in a sensitive witness protection case and in the analysis and development of surveillance initiatives.

I also played an increasingly important role in the investigation into best working practices and subsequently implementing progressive change.
