Frank Mulligan BA (Hons), FCMI


Frank’s wealth of experience in audit and review, business administration, and leadership, extends beyond his 36 years in the police, where he rose to the rank of Chief Inspector, into professional civilian work.

As Staff Officer to Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Constabulary (HMCIC) Frank was responsible for the review of complaints against the police not resolved by the Scottish police forces. He also wrote the HMCIC Annual Report, collating and checking reports and data in a comprehensive review of policing in Scotland.

It was his remit, too, to audit and review of the Scottish Crime Recording Standard across all Scottish police forces. And he was part of the thematic inspection team that audited and reviewed specific areas of policing in Scotland.

While Principal Advisor to the Police Complaints Commissioner for Scotland (PCCS) as acting Superintendent, he was a key member of the team tasked with setting up the Commission. He developed the project plan for its permanent home, ensured milestones were met, liaised with contractors and sub-contractors, and co-chaired the programme board to deliver the project on time and within budget.

Frank wrote the first comprehensive review of complaints about the police in Scotland, and was responsible for the audit and review of recording such complaints in forces.

Frank also led on the formation of Statutory Agreements with the six UK policing bodies, along with Memoranda of Understanding with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) and HMICI. And he represented PCCS on the European Partnership against Corruption (EPAC).

He was Deputy Camp Commander of the operational police team before and during the Lockerbie trial in the Netherlands, working together with the FBI and the Dutch police.

With strong interpersonal and communication skills, Frank is both an experienced public speaker and trainer who has worked as a trainer on several large projects and specialist roles.

Other skills include report-writing to the standard required by the Crown Office and the Scottish Government.

He has an honours degree in Criminology and Social Policy and is a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute.

A lifelong rugby enthusiast, he’s been a player, referee and coach – and has even helped to shape the careers of two internationalists.
