Dan Tiller

I’m Dan Tiller, recently retired from the Metropolitan Police after spending 30 years (that flashed by!) mainly in Armed roles, ending up as UK Specialist Firearms Training Director.

I have always been an advocate of strong teams, from the early 1990s working in a Public Order Unit in the era of Acid House Parties and Poll Tax Riots, then a dabble with Homicide Command and Surveillance before joining Specialist Firearms Dept SO19 in 1995.

This was the beginning of an adventurous journey, sometimes dangerous, sometimes exciting but always challenging. I was fortunate to be twice promoted and retained within ‘the Dept’ and this gave me the opportunity to build my own high performing teams both on Operations and Training. I instructed in various environments and took the best elements from all that I found, working in elite teams in the US, Singapore, Israel and all over Europe. I led teams in the UK running high profile Ops involving President Obama, Pope Benedict and leading Counter Terrorist Teams during the Olympics. In addition, I qualified as a Post Incident Manager, dealing with the aftermath of shootings, supporting the principal officers back to work.

After leaving the Met I worked for the FCO, constructing policing teams in the Caribbean, project managing in Saudi Arabia and designing and running hostile environment training for inexperienced teams working overseas. I joined Cleartrack as an associate in 2021, attracted by the innovative approach of the team and the enthusiasm to succeed.

When not working I play golf, walk with my wife and ‘Ozzie’ my flatcoat retriever. My 2 children are at University and I am trying to emulate them by fitting in an MSc in my spare time!
