Adam Greenslade

Senior Lecturer

School of Justice, Security and Sustainability

I am a course leader and lecturer with a background in policing and private industry security management and investigation. I have operated across various disciplines during my policing career ranging from covert policing to policing the roads in safety, enforcement and crime disruption roles. I am an accredited counter fraud specialist with an interest in commercial crime and emerging crime trends.

I have provided media commentary to television, digital and radio broadcasters on a range of contemporary and roads policing issues, both live and recorded.

I’m proud to be a member of the team of experts here at the Institute of Policing and I look forward to working with you on your chosen path of study.
