SB Consultants Director Mike Adamson was a Career Detective and Subject Matter Expert in Counter Terrorism. Highly regarded Nationally for his capabilities, he worked for the Metropolitan Police Special Operations, West Yorkshire Police Special Branch and Humberside Police Special Branch. He is qualified to the highest National Standards and has trained Police Special Branch Operatives throughout the country. He has worked with the Security Services on many occasions on operations in the UK and Internationally, where he has established contacts and a vast amount of operational knowledge.

Mike was ‘head-hunted’ by the Special Operations of the Metropolitan Police to use his specialist operational knowledge to write policy. He did this by contacting and forming relationships with Military Intelligence, Defence Intelligence Service, GCHQ, Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), Security Service (MI5), Counter Terrorism Unit (SO15), Special Branch (SO12). He developed a strategic assessment document, used to direct Special Branch operations to date.

Mike has retired from the police with a truly enviable reputation and following the Manchester Arena bombing. He now focuses his attention on creating safer events including:

  • Concerts
  • UK and European tours
  • Festivals
  • Sports events
  • Christmas Markets

Anywhere that crowds gather, presents the terrorist with a target. How vulnerable they are, depends on people like Mike and his specially selected team of operatives. 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mike over the summer of 2018 where we were involved in delivering security solutions at several Events. As a former Police and Government Counter-Terrorism expert, Mike impressed me with his down to earth thinking and client orientated problem-solving. Mike conducted himself in a very professional manner and proved to be a friendly, team player keen on knowledge sharing and experience transfer.

At one such event in Hull, he was able to raise the issue of a potential security concern that never appeared on our radar before. He ensured that my staff were alert to the issue.  I am sure that Mike will add value to wherever he applies his knowledge in the future.”
