John Carnochan was a senior police officer in some of the toughest parts of the west of Scotland.  During his career he turned his attention from solving murders and other violent crimes to asking why Scotland’s murder rate was much higher than its neighbours.  In his new semi-autobiographical book Conviction, he explored this journey.  This included setting up the Violence Reduction Unit working on violence prevention and engagement with other public services and local communities.  John was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in 2007 for distinguished service and in 2010 made a Fellow by Distinction of the Royal College of Physician’s Faculty of Public Health.  He is a popular and engaging  lecturer who has addressed audiences in different parts of the world.

John will talk about his book and take questions in what promises to be a fascinating and stimulating event.
