In 2010, after an exemplary record in the police service for over 17 years, he found himself dismissed when he spoke the truth when tasked to assess the threat from terrorism. He refused to lie about his threat analysis and hand over a bogus threat assessment. He was unwilling to bear false witness. His employers, on sacking him said that it was a very sad occasion as his beliefs could be correct. They said he had made an enormous contribution to his force.
