British Transport Police Expenditure Ellie Bird

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 ‘leadership realm’ of the German Banks. Next she moves to British Transport Police.

Installed in her new post with BTP, they spend a massive £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. Isn’t this a vested interest?
