Employed as the Operations Manager – Crime Reduction by the city centre management company Cv One Ltd he worked with the local Coventry Pubwatch scheme to reduce crime within the evening economy by over 55%. He was responsible for setting up a number of multi agency operations and working with offender management group. He was particularly successful in obtaining funding to provide training for door staff and frontline licensed trade staff as well as supporting best bar none schemes and judging the annual local Godiva Awards best pub and best club sections. 

Trevor has also 32 years voluntary service with the Special Constabulary; currently serving as a Special Inspector leading on policing the evening economy and supporting pro-active licensing operations within the Coventry area. He now works closely with the partnership planning team at Coventry and with his team of specials supports operations across the city. 

In 2011 he left Cv One and spent time working on the Olympic project in London before moving to his new post within Security Services at University of Warwick, where he now proactively takes part in the Responsible Drinking Group and has been involved in a mapping exercise to help reduce alcohol related incidents within the student population.

Over a number of years Trevor has worked closely with NPW colleagues in planning and delivering our annual conferences and judging the Pubwatch Awards. As a result of a recent re-structuring of Committee responsibilities he has taken a lead role in Co-ordinating our regional delivery in the Midlands and South and has a particular challenge of identifying future Regional Representatives in areas where we currently need volunteers.
