We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you to one
of our courses in the coming year.
Following the Attorney General’s Fraud Review of 2006, the City
of London Police were asked to develop a training academy which
would become a centre of excellence for training in the prevention,
detection and investigation of fraud and economic crime.
Through sharing our knowledge and experience and acting as a
global leader in sharing economic crime and fraud prevention
internationally, we aim to make the UK and the international
markets in which we operate a safer place and a more difficult
environment for fraudsters to function.
As well as being the Head of Training and
Educational Services for the Economic Crime & Fraud
Training Academy, Detective Chief Inspector Strickland
has a portfolio which includes development of fraud
investigative doctrine, dissemination of best practice and the
co-ordination of fraud prevention and awareness campaigns for
public and private sector partners as part of the City of
London Police Economic Crime Directorate.
He brings some 16 years experience to the role, having started
his policing career in 1996. During his varied career which has
included uniform, intelligence and volume crime work, he has also
headed up a Police Fraud Engagement Team providing advice, guidance
and consultancy to UK police forces and counter-fraud specialists.
In 2009 he headed up the team responsible for designing and
delivering the National Fraud Intelligence Bureaus technical
solution ‘Know Fraud’, probably the most powerful intelligence
system in the world used to counter fraud activity.
He qualified as a police trainer and in 2000 was seconded to
National Police Training (now the National Policing Improvement
Agency) where he worked as a law trainer and specialist and
tactical skills trainer.
