In the final year of a professional doctorate in Criminal Justice Ian provides an entertaining review of recent case law that identifies potential pitfalls for unprepared corporates and suggests some easy wins to mitigate the risk and meet the needs of Health & Safety, using attacks within the Cash & Valuables In Transit sector as a case study.

The frustration and detection of internal crime has seen significant success, including a year on year saving of £2.2M for a leading supermarket chain. Ian’s final Masters Dissertation ‘The Credit Crunch, other fine Biscuits and Foie Gras – Do retailers have the appetite to deal with employee driven stock loss?’ recommends a number of pragmatic solutions.
He is keen to add value to the commercial sector in terms of understanding the best ways of eliminating bulk and violent crime within the workplace by engaging with, amongst others, current and ex-offenders.
