Simon Mclaughlin & Jen Stark, Safety Cameras Scotland
Simon Mclaughlin, Data Analyst, Safety Cameras Scotland
Simon spent a decade in banking in various analytical and operational roles including as a strategic planning and forecasting consultant. Simon then joined Police Scotland where he has been for seven years, most of that time within Safety Cameras Scotland as a data analyst with a remit for the east and west of Scotland. Simon likes to influence policy and strategy by evidencing ideas and is a firm believer in evidence based decision making. He is also a bit of a gadget freak and when he's not got his head in the numbers then it can probably be found in a VR headset!
