The International Professional Security Association (IPSA) celebrates 60 years

August 15th 2019

The IPSA is a trade association that has been representing individual and company members in the security industry for 60 years. To celebrate this achievement, they will be holding an anniversary luncheon at the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham on Wednesday, 25th of September 2019.

During the event, presentations will be given by leading experts in their fields including Mick Creedon QPM. Mick is the former Chief Constable of Derbyshire and will discuss changes to how police forces approach criminal behaviour, investigations, dealing with politics and managing relationships with the communities that they operate in. He will go into detail about cases that he has personally been involved with and use them to demonstrate the changes not only in investigative techniques but also the nature of criminality.

Joining Mick is Dr David Churchill, Associate Professor in Criminal Justice from Leeds University. Dr. Churchill will contrast aspects of continuity and change in the security sector spanning a number of decades. He will explore the nuances and implications of this transformation while detailing long-standing structural consistencies

IPSA Chair, Jane Farrell said, “Members will also get to hear about the achievements of the association over the course of the year; the Association has grown in size and influence representing the interests of members to key industry stakeholders.”
