My History is such: I retired from Metropolitan Police in 1991 after 34 years service, reaching the rank of Detective Superintendent and Acting Detective Chief Superintendent. In the Metropolitan Police I received the largest number of Commendations, one High Commendation and seven court commendations for investigations. In 1990 I received the Queens Police Medal for Service to the Capital. Having retired I started a private Detective Agency, Herridge Associates and later Surelock Asset Management. From that time I have, with others employed by the company, investigated high value art and jewellery thefts and major enquiries in Switzerland, Hong Kong, Thailand, Philippines, Pakistan and UK and Europe. In the last year I have investigated considerable losses in parts of the building industry where success has resulted in recovery and change of practices to prevent the same fraud again committed. I find it prudent to say, in all matters I have dealt with of late, I have been aided and assisted by professional individuals employed by our company, which has bought success to each operation we have undertaken.
