In consequence, one of my long term plans was always to move into the world of international policing development. Rose was very supportive of this aim and we were both keen to settle upon a business model that would be ethically based, unique in concept and very different from the usual â€śoff the shelfâ€ť management consultancies.
Shortly after the company was launched we realised that our original vision, which focused exclusively upon international policing development, was too restrictive. Given the rapidly changing policing landscape in the UK at present, our initial decision to exclude the domestic policing market from our future plans was unnecessary and represented a wasted opportunity. It also effectively precluded us from providing much needed support to charities and community projects closer to home.
