Alsager evening

Janet Keeling, MD of Senate Group, was hostess of the Security Institute on Thursday evening, March 6, as the institute took its fraud and corruption masterclass ‘on the road’.

Janet’s husband Paul, the former senior Cheshire Police man, was out of the country on business. The Keelings’ Alsager-based security training and services company welcomed security managers and consultants from across the Midlands, and from further afield, who were in the Midlands that day.

The former Met and Surrey Police man Mike Thompson gave a one-hour digest of the masterclass as given in London recently – presentations there by the data protection and privacy authority Chris Brogan; University of Portsmouth Prof Mark Button; and Kaley Crossthwaite, partner and head of forensic accounting at the accountancy firm BDO LLP.

Afterwards Mick Garrihy, the former Cheshire Police commander who joined Senate last year as general manager national operations, took visitors on a tour of the premises which include a control and incident management room; and then guests enjoyed a glass of wine.

Besides other masterclasses and the annual conference at the Thistle Hotel, London Marble Arch, on September 9, the Security Institute is running its summer social event – the afternoon cruise along the Thames from near Tower Bridge to Greenwich (and back) on the Dixie Queen.
