Mike Conway is a former prison governor and Operations Director with vast experience of the criminal justice system in both the public and private sectors. He is currently employed as the Director of Strategy & Corporate Change in one of the private sector providers. From working in the dock of the Old Bailey to helping tackle the infamous Strangeways prison riot, which lasted for 25 days, he has first-hand knowledge of the pressures on the prison system. His talk will address the current challenges, including the issue of drugs in prisons, and how to create the correct balance between punishment and rehabilitation.”
Tom Lloyd – Former chief constable of Cambridgeshire has had a long career working throughout the police force on many high profile cases. He has a wealth of experience and some great insights and controversial opinions on drug laws that make for a fascinating talk.
Mr. Lloyd has called for the legalising of drugs. He has said he now regrets investigating and arresting drug users during his career as a policeman in London and Cambridge. “When you think about arresting somebody who is in possession of drugs, are you really catching a criminal?” he asked. “When it came to law enforcement I think I caused more harm than good.” He is chairman of Whistleblowers UK. He said: We have a simple, if ambitious, vision for the future of this country which is an environment where whistleblowers feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without fear of personal loss or detriment.”
