I have been a safeguarding consultant to the United Nations, European Commission, Scouting Ireland and the Council of Europe and a safeguarding lecturer for the European Academy of Law and UCD.

As a Senior Investigating Officer leading three national Garda units - National Child Protection Unit, Sexual Crime Management Unit, Online Child Exploitation Unit - I have for 15 years successfully conducted, managed and overseen serious crime investigations and the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

I have developed safeguarding policy with Tusla, the HSE and the Departments of Justice & Equality, Health and Children & Youth Affairs as well as having been Ireland's National Expert to Interpol and Europol on child safeguarding.

I have spent most of my adult life ensuring children grow up in a safe and loving environment. I now wish to spend the rest of my, hopefully, many years helping you keep children safe while doing the job you love.

do what you love, safely
