Couldn’t be more excited about this webinar with John. We’re in massive awe of what he’s achieved and want to do anything we can to spread the word about his work.

John is a passionate advocate of prevention, whole system thinking, early years and effective collaboration and also the importance of human relationships and acknowledging the value of “being human.” Which couldn’t be more of a perfect fit with what we believe here at Tales Toolkit.

Retired Detective Chief Superintendent with Strathclyde Police. John was a police officer for almost 39 years working mostly as a Detective. He was involved in various roles in the investigation of serious crime, murder inquiries in particular. He worked as deputy head of the Criminal Investigation Department, a Licensed Hostage Negotiator and was responsible within the force for all matters relating to abduction.

Together with a colleague, John established the Violence Reduction Unit with the aim of developing a strategy that would bring about sustainable reductions in violence within Strathclyde. In April 2006 the VRU assumed a Scotland wide role and continues to be supported by the Scottish Government. Their fundamental tenet is that “violence is preventable – not inevitable”.

In June 2014 John “retired” and now works as an independent consultant and adviser on violence prevention, effective partnership working and leadership.

John acted as an adviser for many projects and organisations including;
– World Health Organisation and Violence Prevention Alliance.
– Inter-American Development Bank work on citizen safety projects in the Caribbean region and Latin America.
– Bernard van Leer Foundation on child safety and early years projects in Latin America.
– The Hunter Foundation assisting in developing a UK wide project in partnership with BBC Children in Need to improve the outcomes for children on the edge of care.
