In 1999 he was selected as a specialist staff officer for her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary, based at the Home Office, completing specialist inspections and thematic inspections. He attended the Strategic Command Course in 2001, spending time working with the Chicago Police looking at their approach to the review of murder enquiries.
