Tom Lloyd - former Chief Constsble of Cambridgeshire
Tom Lloyd has had a long career working throughout the police force on many high profile cases and has a wealth of experience and some great insights and controversial opinions on drug laws that make for a fascinating talk. Mr. Lloyd controversially has called for the legalising of drugs. He has said he now regrets investigating and arresting drug users during his career as a policeman in London and Cambridge. "When you think about arresting somebody who is in possession of drugs, are you really catching a criminal?" he asked. "When it came to law enforcement I think I caused more harm than good." He is chairman of Whistleblowers UK. He said: We have a simple, if ambitious, vision for the future of this country which is an environment where whistleblowers feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without fear of personal loss or detriment."
