How We Got Started

Sancus was established in 2009 by Mick Turner and Tony Hester, former senior police officers in the UK, both with extensive careers in managing high level investigations and serious crimes.

Our ambition was to create a company that focused on developing and delivering practical investigation training for those involved in the criminal justice system, and we are now the leading, dedicated provider of Investigative Skills Training and Investigation & Review Services in the UK.


We provide a wide range of investigative skills training courses suitable for all levels, delivered by highly qualified sector experienced trainers with practical knowledge of complex investigations. All Sancus courses are designed in consultation with our clients to ensure that the training is personalised to an organisation’s requirements. Our quality assurance system ensures exacting standards are maintained, giving clients complete confidence in our training and delivery.

Sancus also deliver investigation and review services across a number of specialist areas and are leading experts in undertaking Mental Health Homicide and Serious Incident Investigations for NHS England and Domestic Homicide Reviews led by Community Safety Partnerships. We offer a confidential, sensitive and independent approach to investigations, working with trusted investigators who are subject matter professionals, known to us personally and through reputation.
