After 23 years service as a Metropolitan Police Officer in East London, from 2005 to 2007 our Consultant went on to specialise in 'Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design' [CPTED] and in 2008 after a year's secondment , he joined a government-funded regeneration project in East London. In this role he provided advice on CPTED issues to the local Police, Designers, Architects, Residents Groups, TMO's, transport for London, Local Authority departments and Commercial developers relating to the design of streets, transport hubs, parks and green spaces, housing and commercial property developments.
After studying CPTED methods in both the UK and in Holland he also developed innovative strategies for improving the design of the environment and reducing crime that were highly successful. His Crime Reduction initiatives for both Day and Night-Time Economies saw reductions in offences of between 40% and 80% across six areas of East London. These successes led to him being an invited speaker on CPTED at both University College London and Oxford Brookes University. Since returning to his home city in 2010, Paul campaigned for change in relation to how Litter, Graffiti and Anti-social Behaviour are managed in Hereford and in August 2013 his T4C project received a grant from the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner to address what he also saw as serious issues in the City.
Understanding how both law abiding citizens and criminals interact with their environment is key to reducing crime through applying CPTED principles.
Our research shows that too many of those who are responsible for managing issues associated with Night-time Economies have little awareness of what happens in the bars and clubs and on the streets of their towns and cities after dark.

Our Crime Prevention services take many forms and where they differ from 'security' advice is that they seek to prevent crime by deterring offenders. We seek to prevent Crime - not Record it on CCTV. To achieve this aim it is always necessary to understand fully what attracts any criminal to a particular target. Unfortunately people rely far too often on expensive physical measures to deter criminals. And far too often the Security Consultant you call to advise you then just happens to recommend a product their company sells.
We also believe there are two categories of consultant:-
* The consultant who will tell you what you want to hear.
* The consultant who will tell you what you need to hear.
Our Professional Consultant is definitely one capable of providing you with all you need to hear and in addition to being a trained Crime Prevention specialist, he is NeBOSH qualified in Health and Safety Risk Assessment and the Management of Workplace Safety after undertaking extensive training with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. He is also a qualified Level II IFE Fire Risk Assessor having been trained by the London Fire Brigade.
