About EPIC

EPIC (Ex Police in Industry and Commerce) is the only business networking organisation exclusively for former police officers and police staff who, are leaving the service or having left the service, are intending to or have, either started their own business or entering the commercial sector.

Choosing with whom to do business can be a minefield. Most people do not know where to go, or who to trust and the last thing they want to do is pick someone at random with no prior knowledge of their reliability.

In order to inspire customer confidence, we ensure that all our members are vetted and are proud of our strapline of "Integrity Assured".

Our Membership

Membership is open to police officers and police staff from Home Office Forces and Government run Security and Investigation services who, on leaving become, or intend to become, engaged within business, industry or commerce.

EPIC has a growing membership whose ranks, when serving, ranged from Constable to Chief Constable and from general support staff to the highly specialist.

Many are self-employed, owning their own companies or providing consultancy services and others are leading practitioners in their fields and employed by major companies.

The current Patron is Sir Peter Fahy, QPM. Chief Constable Greater Manchester Police, (Retired)
