The Symposium will include case studies from experts in their field from the retail, cash-in-transit, ATM, banking and academic world and presentations from the European Standards Working Group, BSIA, the Flying Squad and European Security Transport Association.

In addition, and for the first time at the Symposium, delegates will be offered the opportunity to participate in a table-top exercise on Tiger Kidnap incident management from one of the country’s leading specialists on the subject, David Ryan, an International Specialist Security Consultant.

Richard Childs QPM, former Lincolnshire Police Chief Constable and veteran conference facilitator, will chair the event and will be supported by two ACPO representatives, Acting Deputy Chief Constable Ian Seabridge, Greater Manchester Police, and Asst. Chief Constable Graham Sunderland, Cumbria Constabulary.

The speakers include Martin McInerney, Regional Security Manager for the William Hill Organisation; Graham Hand, Regional Risk Director for G4S Cash Services; John Hamilton, Head of Group Security, and Dale Bradley, Group Health & Safety Advisor, of Bradford & Bingley plc; Steven Gauge, CEO of the Suzy Lamplugh Trust; Detective Superintendent Bob Cummings of the MPS Flying Squad; and Paul Fullicks, Loomis and Chair of ESTA Security Working Group.

Symposium chair, Richard Childs, who will facilitate the event for the fifth consecutive year said: “The Focus on Robbery™ Symposium has established itself as a ‘must go to’ annual event for anyone interested in protecting people and property. During my time as chair, the Symposium has gone from strength to strength and this year’s agenda looks set to be one of the best ever; I can’t wait to be there.”

The Focus on Robbery™ Partnership is a joint not-for-profit initiative formed in 2004 by IBP Group to harness expertise from every discipline that has an interest in understanding the reasons for criminal behaviour, analysing the effectiveness of current reduction measures and reducing violent crime. The Symposium is an important part of the overall work of the partnership, which has produced many avenues of continued research benefiting those affected by robbery.
