David will reflect on the role of imprisonment in Scotland today and the impact it has on both the people who spend time in prison and the rest of us in society.
David enjoyed a 38 year career in Justice – firstly in policing and then in prisons. He spent 18 years in the Metropolitan Police in London, before transferring back to Scotland, where he was the Chief Constable firstly of Dumfries and Galloway Co and then of Lothian and Borders Police.
He spent five years as HM Chief Inspector of Prisons for Scotland, inspecting the 15 prisons in Scotland. He has recently conducted an independent inquiry into Mental Health Services in Tayside.
