Stewart Hurry biography
SSCS Project Manager & Secure Transport
Stewart retired from Police Scotland in 2014 after 30 years' service, joining SBRC in May 2015. During his 30 years with the police Stewart had experience in the areas of crime prevention including architectural liaison, safer communities, violence reduction and partnership working.
On joining the centre, Stewart took over Project Management of the Distribution Industry Partnership Scotland (DIPS), which has morphed into SSCS, Secure Supply Chain Scotland, a group of companies predominantly involved in the production, freight forwarding and distribution of spirits, produced in Scotland. Stewart has also been instrumental in the formation and coordination of two partnership groups which are looking to tackle issues in a constructive and collaborative way. The Scottish Secure Parking Group is a partnership which focuses on the development of additional safe and secure parking and also the setting and maintaining of minimum standards for the facilities they provide. The other organisation is SCRIP, Supply Chain Risk Industry Partnership, which looks at risks in the supply chain and aims to provide a ‘one-stop-shop’ for advice, news, guidance, training and best practice, breaking down silos and both within and between organisations.
In addition to focusing on the safety and security of freight, Stewart also leads the work of the SBRC in respect of safety and security within the passenger transport sectors.
