Co-Founder TPSO & Peer Publishing Ltd – Rollo stepped down in December 2021 to concentrate on his new, very demanding role, within the security industry. Rollo continues to be an enthusiastic supporter of TPSO! We wish him well with his new job, with huge thanks for the massive contribution that he has made since 2018 in both establishing and helping TPSO grow!
A former Metropolitan Police Officer, Rollo left the Service in 1992 to explore opportunities in the private security sector.
With many years security experience ranging from front line, City corporate security roles and mobile patrol positions with different companies in both Essex and Kent, to management positions at two top London five star hotels, contract management for some of the biggest names in the City and West End, and for several years, hands on responsibility for the countries largest mobile patrol and response team, he has a broad spectrum of UK industry experience.
In 2011, motivated by wanting to change the shocking way many front line officers were treated, he founded the National Security Workers Union (N.S.W.U.). After 3 years of fighting for better standards of training, better public recognition of the valuable roles performed by front line staff, and justice for those that were abused by rogue companies, he was forced to dissolve the Union as he had been supplementing the union funds from his own pocket, but was unable to continue as faced likely bankruptcy!
Always passionate about the industry, and still fighting to make a difference, Rollo joined the “Security Institute” in 2017, and has also created a social media profile, highlighting major issues, raising public awareness of our crucial roles, and becoming an established and respected commentator along the way.
Recognised as genuinely striving to promote and support the vital roles played by UK front Line security Professionals, Rollo was recruited on to the team at The Professional Security Officer Magazine, in January 2018.
