The following two documents show that Chief Inspector Ellie Bird completed a Common Purpose course as a senior police officer for West Midlands police. As is usual for CP, this brought her into the â€˜leadership realmâ€™ of the German Banks. Next she moves to British Transport Police.
Installed in her new post with BTP, they spend a massive Â£47,000 on Common Purpose training. Ms Bird is Training Co-ordinator. In addition, and as a Common Purpose graduate herself, she then makes recommendation within BTP as to what information on Common Purpose should be released to the public. Isnâ€™t this a vested interest?
