I began my career in 2004 as an Intelligence Researcher at North Yorkshire Police working in Selby. In April 2005 I became the Intelligence Analyst for Selby District using analysis of crime and intelligence to inform operational policing and direct resources. Whilst at North Yorkshire Police I got my first taste of major investigations when I was seconded to work on a double stranger rape. As the investigation developed it became a protracted enquiry into a paedophile who had been offending for more than 30 years. In 2008 I moved to Greater Manchester Police to work on the Major Incident Team where I worked on murder investigations and other complex investigations into firearms discharges and sexual offences. The culmination of my time in MIT was working on the senseless murder of Anuj BIDVE, a student shot and killed in Salford on Boxing Day 2011. During my time in MIT I frequently presented evidence to Crown Court earning two judges commendations. In April 2012 I moved to the Rochdale Division and I work closely with the child sexual exploitation team. In my two years on this team I have written an extensive problem profile to assist in developing understanding of child sexual exploitation, its victims and perpetrators, and implementing best practice for prevention and enforcement opportunities. I have also been actively involved in investigating child sexual exploitation offences and working to protect children and young people from harm.
Over the last ten years I have developed a vast knowledge and experience of all types of analysis to support investigations and meet performance targets. I have developed specialist skills in the analysis of telecommunications data and the area of child sexual exploitation. I am now looking to share this knowledge with police forces, businesses and other professionals in order to optimise the use of analysis to achieve results and improve performance.
