About Dr Geoff Barton...
I am a retired senior Scotland Yard Detective, with experience of managing some of the largest terrorist and firearms incidents in London and investigating serial killers, murders and armed robberies. I have arrested a member of the British Royal Family, a member of the British Cabinet and a Four Star British General in Aldershot Barracks. I have twice used squads of armed officers to take over Foreign Embassies in London. I have been involved in 250 gun battles with armed criminals and 500 incidents where the criminals claimed to be armed. I have justified my actions to several Coroners and Police Commissioners. I have worked an average of 120 hours a week for six months whilst investigating major crime.
I have received more than 200 complaints during my career, including one made by a Member of the Royal Family, one made by a Cabinet Minister and one from Michael Jackson. None have ever been proved and one Detective Chief Superintendent was advised by a senior officer to resign and one Detective Chief Superintendent was transferred, both on the day that they recommended disciplinary action against me. Most police officers nickname me “Legend”, but Sir Peter Imbert used to call me “Killer” for an unimaginative reason.
I have now written forty books on True Crime, Biography, Sports Science, Sports Medicine, Sports Coaching, Criminology, etc.
About my Talks...
Each talk lasts 45 minutes and is supported with a Powerpoint presentation. I provide my own state-of-the-art laptop and data projector. I am happy to answer questions after each talk.
My fee is £100.00 plus 32p per mile travel expenses. I have three bases and so I am happy to cover a distance of 50 miles from each of these bases – London Euston; Manchester Piccadilly or Edinburgh Waverley Stations.
