Former super directs national security

02 February 2012

Former chief superintendent for West Midlands Police, Russ Smith, has been appointed National Security Director at Resources Services Group.

Russ Smith, who first joined the company as Police and Justice Services Director, has been appointed National Security Director for the British arm of the company. During his time with West Midlands Police, Russ, who lives in South Derbyshire, undertook a variety of roles, including staff officer, chief constable and senior investigating officer for a number of serious offences. He was also a firearms, football and public order commander during his time at the force.

“I am looking forward to tackling the challenges this new position will bring and applying the wealth of valuable knowledge I gained during my time with one of the largest police forces in the country to further enable Resource to develop its security offering,” he said. “We already have a number of high profile security contracts under our belt and are confident we will continue to understand and meet the needs of organisations that outsource their security requirements within this highly specialised and regulated sector.”

Resource, which provides outsourcing staff to the private and public sectors in the UK and Ireland, has also further bolstered its security expertise with the appointment of Neill Pow as National Security Operations Manager. Pow, who lives in Stafford, has significant experience of working within the prison industry.

The security market is a key focus for Resource, which made the innovative move of launching a Security Advisory Board (SAB) in February last year in a bid to boost the firm’s security offering and act as advocates for that offering at the highest level. The company’s outsourcing service includes manned guarding, supplying close protection officers and custodial detention officers.

Andy Vaughan, managing director at Resource, said: “The security sector is a key focus of ours and the creation of these two new roles will further enable us to develop in this newly-emerging market. We are delighted to have made the appointments and welcome the wealth of expertise both Russ and Neill both bring to the team.”
Resource’s British headquarters are located at Ashted Lock, Birmingham Science Park.
