Brian brings insights from three decades’ policing to his role as Foresee’s security specialist.
Formerly, as a Counter-Terrorist Security Coordinator, he had overall responsibility for the security coordination for VIP visits and major events, notably all 2014 Commonwealth Games live sites.
Since hanging up his Inspector’s cap, he’s been in demand for senior civilian roles, including security cluster manager for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
LEAD ASSOCIATE: SECCO
Security isn’t just Brian Ferguson’s area of expertise. It’s his passion.
Recently retired as an Inspector with Police Scotland after 30 years’ service, he is now in demand as a consultant, mostly on large-scale security assignments.
Brian gained his Home Office qualifications as a Police Search Advisor (PolSA), Missing Person Search Manager, and Counter-Terrorist Security Coordinator (CT SecCO) in the early 2000s.
For the next 15 years, those roles saw him engaged in many high-profile operations, from dealing with serious crimes to preparing for state receptions.
As a SecCo, he had responsibility for coordinating security for VIP visits and other major occasions where his team had to work closely with other agencies to ensure a safe and secure event.
Seconded as a full-time CT SecCo for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, he was responsible for planning the safe running of the BBC and Glasgow Life ‘live sites’ (major off-site public viewing venues).
Shortly after retiring from the force, he was delighted to be offered the role of security cluster manager for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, covering the cycle races in Glasgow and the golf at Gleneagles. It is much to his credit that the overall event passed off without incident.
More recently, he has been involved in managing general security and asset protection across multiple construction sites as part of a multi-million pound contract with Glasgow City Council.
Away from work, Brian enjoys most sports – football and golf most of all. He’s married with a grown-up daughter.
