Our Team

Dave Pitt

Director of Specialist Services

With experience as an explosives search handler, trainer and team leader at the Metropolitan Police, I worked in partnership with other government departments. I transferred across to Counter Terrorism Policing (National Headquarters – CTPHQ) in 2016, becoming the national canine lead for CT policing where I focussed on the design and development of the National Canine Training and Accreditation Standard (NCTAS), the new cross government standard for explosive detection dog teams.

All of what I’ve learnt in my years of service has helped me prepare for this role but nothing more so than the work on NCTAS, the new standard for British Police, Military and soon to be private sector. I will champion standards in the industry, bringing across the knowledge and experience needed to implement and deliver NCTAS.

GSS’s existing partnerships with the University of Lincoln, Home Office and industry paves the way for an enthralling next chapter in both the Company and my own evolution.
