We are delighted to welcome Gary Shaw, Professor of Professional Practice at the University of Sunderland, former Detective Chief Inspector, and expert in the field of investigative interviewing, to the first Masterclass of 2019.

Gary has considerable experience in the field of investigative interviews. A former Detective Chief Inspector in the Northumbria Police with over 30 years’ service, Gary dedicated much time to developing training in this specialism. He was awarded an MBE in 2009 for his services to policing.

Gary has lectured internationally to police and academic institutions, and became the National Investigative Interviewing Adviser within the National Crime Agency (NCA). During this time, Gary supported police services throughout the UK with their investigations into serious, complex and major crime, developing implementation plans around the National Interview Strategy, and developing training on the interviewing of significant witnesses and suspects.

In this Masterclass, Gary will share practical tips on how to conduct an effective investigative interview, focusing on workplace investigations, bringing insights (and stories) from his colourful career.
