  About Derek Lockie:

I have over 30 years experience in the public, private and voluntary sector as a police officer and civil servant. This includes being the Chief of Staff in two Government departments (Department of Communities and Ministry of Justice).

As a police officer I served up to the rank of Detective Chief Inspector & Uniformed Superintendent. I am accredited and have led criminal investigations across a multitude of critical incidents and life changing matters. These includes work as a public protection officer serving and supporting vulnerable community members in partnership and collaboration with multi-agency partners such as social services, health, education, housing and court services.

As the Chief of Staff to the Victims Commissioner for England and Wales working at the Ministry of Justice, London I briefed and guided meetings with Ministers, Police and Crime Commissioners, the Director of Public Prosecutions, HM Inspector of Constabulary and influential players in the criminal justice system and beyond.

I served as a UK Lead Director and operator in Crisis Negotiation with twelve years experience in this field. I currently train police and other agencies from across the UK in the skills of persuasion and influence, mentoring and developing Chief Executives, Police and Crime Commissioners, private, public and voluntary sector organisations and groups.

Philip Kedge is a retired police Chief Inspector and the founder and director of the McKenzie Friend UK Network. His aim is to take family law out of the hands of solicitors with an ethical business to reduce conflict and acrimony, to provide a cost effective McKenzie Friend national service and to reduce the emotional harm to children.
