I hope you can help me please? I am a television producer making a new crime documentary series for an international broadcaster. I am hoping to find retired officers who may have worked on some of the cases we are featuring. I was steered in your direction by a media officer at a police head quarters that I initially contacted.
The series features murders that have taken place around the coast of the UK and has the crime writer Geoffrey Wansall as its presenter. The style of the series will take on a vintage theme, almost like that of a Agatha Christie novel. We are looking to feature expert witnesses connected to the crimes featured via interviews to camera, we would like to hear from professional people who dealt with the crime directly, giving their account of the role played in events.
If possible could you circulate this request to your members please? The case I am featuring connected to your area is that of the Nottingham crime boss Colin Gunn, dating back to the early 2000’s, it would be ideal to try to speak to any of the officers or detectives involved in this case, solving the murders of the Stirlands.
I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider speaking to me further regarding circulating this request asking ex-officers to be part of this production

I am attaching below a draft ‘Shout Out’ intended for publication that if you’re happy with perhaps you could circulate it to all your members please?
