Martyn Linton

Martyn Linton is a former member of a low level street gang who made some tough decisions and managed to get out of that life.

He grew up in the West Midlands and aged 12 started to mix with the wrong crowd. He was expelled from school and gained no GCSE's. Since starting his working life he has worked within the security, retail, hospitality and policing.

Martyn is a member of the International police Association's Police Educators Group and he has taught police officers from across the world on gangs and exploitation. He has also taught professional agencies such as the National Health Service , children's care providers, local authority departments, prison staff and more.

Martyn has obtained qualifications in the US on gang tactics and enforcement and is a current Certified Basic Gang Specialist. He has trained with US law enforcement and has actively patrolled with them.

His work has resulted in him being awarded the 2021 category for Outstanding Service to Public Safety and National Security in the UK BLACK Awards, an achievement he is very happy with.

Martyn now delivers training to all organisations of gangs and exploitation and has founded training company Home Counties Training Ltd.
