Charlie has significant experience of strategy development, not least the development of national guidance on behalf of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) in a range of documents relating to missing persons, search, stop and search and related terrorism issues. He has also worked with the Home Office, Department for Education, Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Ministry of Justice at a senior level in the development of various national strategic documents, mainly in relation to missing, abducted and trafficked persons.
Charlie has also worked with government ministries and law enforcement agencies in other European countries, representing the UK and the European Union (EU) in the collaborative development of processes relating to international child alert schemes.
Research is a particular strength. Guidance documents are developed through consultation and mainly qualitative research to gather and evaluate the range of views and information upon which those policies or strategies are to be based. This often involves examining and evaluating data from a variety of competing models and solutions to create a solution that will be applicable to a diverse range of national and international solutions.
