Raj was a police officer for 13 years in a UK police force, he was the first turbaned Sikh police officer in his force and that came with its own difficulties. He has had to overcome a lot. Raj worked hard to serve and protect his community and after being told “find another job, this isn’t for people like you” he made it his goal to prove them wrong. He worked in specialist teams including undercover. Raj found himself in some of the most dangerous situations from burning buildings to car chases. He also found himself staring down the barrel of a gun. Raj has an incredible story to tell from his days as a police officer with some heart wrenching tales that changed his life forever. Raj worked on operations that included Child Sexual Exploitation, Human Trafficking, Honour Based Violence, Female Genital Mutilation and Modern Day Slavery. Raj left the police to start his own business after receiving 5 commendations and 2 medals for serving his community and bravery.
Raj now continues to serve his community by continuing to deliver key speeches and talks to schools and communities all over the world on the above topics. He has delivered these sessions to home office organisations also.
Raj was not a business man, but learnt the art of business whilst on his lunch breaks! He would read books and watch others who have made profitable businesses. However this was not enough for Raj, he needed the chance to carry on serving humanity as a proud and devoted Sikh.
Raj established his own Private Investigation Business (Lion Investigation Services), now a triple award winning business, he has featured on the BBC, CNN & The Times Newspaper. He has franchised his business globally and continues to grow. He then went on to start a property portfolio in the UK.
