Criminal Justice & Police Specialist
Dave Rawding has recently retired after 30 years police service. His last police role was as the Chief Inspector Neighbourhood Police Lead. He has worked in all of the Humberside Police divisions in predominantly intelligence and investigating roles. He has also had a number of HQ roles including key positions within Business Change, Risk Management and Marketing and Communications. He was one of the first officers locally to be trained in Restorative Practices when it was introduced to deal with internal grievances. Dave was instrumental in establishing local partnerships and ensuring all Neighbourhood Police resources were trained in RP and used RP regularly to resolve community issues.
Dave strongly supports the evidence that indicates that widening use of Restorative Practice and Restorative Justice will reduce re-offending, improve victim satisfaction, build community spirit and considerably save money.
