Dr Gareth Stubbs served for eighteen years as a British police officer before moving to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, to become a policing and security lecturer at Rabdan Academy.
In this first of three videos for PolicingTV, he explains what led him to become a police officer for Lancashire Constabulary, working in the early days as a response officer in his home town of Blackpool, and latterly in the rank of Chief Inspector in the seaside town, where he had overall responsibility for response and community policing.
Gareth discusses the highs of “cutting crime by two thirds” in the town in that time, and, as his career progressed the growing feeling that he “didn’t quite fit in policing” at the time, including three times when he was motivated to “blow the whistle’ on inappropriate behaviour, and the key learning – for policing, as well as for individual officers – that he believes should follow from those experiences.
