About the event

Our speaker, Barry Cave, started his working life in the theatre at the age of 13 sweeping the stage and progressed through an apprenticeship to become a Stage Manager then Stage Director. He worked with many of the household names but due to the decline in Theatre audiences he decided on a change of career and joined the Police.

He served in two different police forces before being retired due to a serious injury sustained while on duty in 1990.

After the statutory 2 years in uniform, Barry joined the Criminal Investigation Department and worked as a Divisional Detective before an attachment to Special Branch in Counter Terrorist Operations.

As a provincial officer he assisted with occasional close protection duties and has given talks on Close Protection, how Royal Visits are planned, the Brighton Bombing, Counter Terrorism, Prisons and Life “Inside.”

During the course of his Police Service, he received 8 Commendations. He also received a bravery award from Princess Margaret for saving the life of a woman at sea in the early hours of the morning during the winter.

He is a Justice of the Peace and a Freeman of the City of London and his voluntary work included Monitoring a large prison for the Ministry of Justice, a Hospital Governor and a member of the Public Protection Committee.

In short, Barry has a lifetime of wisdom and experience as a Police Detective so please come along to hear with ease what Barry took many years to learn the hard way.
