“Mick Neville has worked closely with Facewatch since the company began in 2010. His mantra was “Images!, images!, images!… just get me the images and my team will do the rest” He ensured that the police understood the value of CCTV footage, particularly footage supplied by businesses, in the detection and prevention of crime. He is a man of acute vision that allows him to see the whole landscape of policing that is ripe for change.”Michael Gordon-Gibson
