All are welcome to hear Matthew Burton, Head of the UK International Crime Bureau (UKICB,) give a glimpse into his work in his lecture, The National Crime Agency’s International Reach and Tools, on Tuesday, November 21 at 6.30pm.

Matthew joined Greater Manchester Police in 1989, where he performed various roles including working in Counter Terrorism. He joined the National Crime Squad (NCS) in 2005, being involved in Regional and International Organised Crime Investigations, and transferred to the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) on its creation in 2006.

With experience and expertise in a full range of Policing roles and as the Head of the UKICB, he safeguards the UK’s integrated approach to international policing that capitalises on the efficiencies and partnership working opportunities that a combined INTERPOL National Central Bureau, EUROPOL National Unit and SIRENE Bureau can bring to law enforcement.

Matthew is also a subject matter expert operationally in firearms command and organisationally in transformation programmes.

The University’s Warrington Campus is home to the Institute of Policing, which has been established with Cheshire Constabulary and offers a number of courses for anyone contemplating a career in Policing. The courses aim to equip students with the skills, knowledge and vocational competence required to become a police officer.
