David retired from The Metropolitan Police Service as a Detective Chief Inspector in 2008 where he had become one of the most effective detectives in dismantling organised crime networks. He formed TM Eye, the sister company to My Local Bobby, to investigate the supply of counterfeit goods and undertake private criminal prosecutions. TM Eye is now the most effective and respected private organisation in this field and has teams focusing globally on luxury goods, tobacco, pharmaceuticals and design rights along with high value frauds. TM Eye recently set up a Prolific Crimes Team and now investigate and prosecute Theft Shoplifting and Person offences. TM Eye also has a Murder and Serious Crimes Review Team investigation miscarriages of justice and more serious crimes. This is supported by covert experts and a new office being established in India. To date over 800 private prosecutions have been undertaken with a 100% conviction rate. David saw TM Eye as the “catch’ and ‘convict’ arm of the organisation and had the vision to form MLB as the front end to ‘prevent’ and ‘deter’ crime and anti social behaviour. David continually advises high-profile clients and organisations from the worlds of commerce and media on matters of corporate and private security / investigation.
