Mark Morgan, Business Manager
Prior to joining Police CPI, Mark completed 30 years as a police officer in both the Metropolitan and Merseyside Police, finishing as the head of response policing for Merseyside.
Throughout his policing career, Mark led many high profile operations and problem solving initiatives to reduce crime & demand, enhance safety and increase efficiency.
Mark previously led the police licensing teams for Liverpool where he instigated numerous work streams to tackle thefts, violence, alcohol related harm, vulnerability and drugs misuse.
He firmly believes in the benefits of effective partnership working, having been the policing representative in the inaugural working party which achieved the ‘Purple Flag award’ for Liverpool, representing a safe and vibrant night time economy; led the implementation of the first ‘Cumulative Impact Policy’ in Liverpool and was a police lead for the comprehensive ‘designing out crime’ partnership initiative in Liverpool City Centre. His work involved visiting other force areas and hosting both U.K. and international guests to discuss good practice within the licensing environment.
Having led pro-active, community, event/security policing having threat and CT considerations, Mark is convinced that Licensing SAVI captures in one place, the wider considerations of legal requirements, design, good working practices, CT considerations, trade initiatives, security and technology attributed to the Licensing Act, and is key to bringing together the benefits for licensed premises to provide a safer and more secure environment for their managers, staff, customers and local communities.
Mark has achieved an honours degree in policing, with dissertations focusing upon partnership work, the licensing trade and associated security.
Ian Shuttleworth, Development Officer
Ian served for 10 years in the Royal Navy before completing 24 years’ service as a police officer in Merseyside Police. Ian’s whole police career was spent in uniform roles, the majority of which were proactive teams, tackling violence, anti-social behaviour, gun and gang crime, drugs misuse and alcohol related harm, with years of experience policing the challenges of a vibrant night time economy within Merseyside.
Ian also led a Neighbourhood Policing Team, using effective partnership working and a problem-solving approach to address local issues. He sought to impact upon the lives of the local community, by utilising crime prevention methods, to increase safety and the feeling of safety. With a thriving night time economy, Ian also built good relationships with those licensed venues within his neighbourhood and Liverpool city centre, helping them to become safer venues for both staff and customers, whilst encouraging them to think about the wider community and how their venue impacted upon them.
Since leaving the Police, Ian’s focus is now on using his experience, to help licensed venues to provide a safe and secure place for their staff and customers and to act as a catalyst in bringing together various partners to improve safety, security and vulnerability in licensed premises. He is confident that Licensing SAVI brings together all the elements a venue requires to help them meet the requirements of the responsible authorities, as well as wider Counter Terrorism considerations and initiatives to promote inclusivity and help deal with vulnerability.
