Gary McManus has worked for the MPS for 20 years as intelligence professional. He has worked in borough intelligence units and spent 4 years on a murder investigation team.

Since 2010 he has been running Project Genesius. This is an initiative between law enforcement and industry to combat the production of counterfeit identity documents. Genesius members range across many areas of the secure printing industry.

Gary was instrumental in proposing a change in law to the Home Office; this resulted in the ‘Specialist Printing Equipment and Offences’ act which became law in April 2015.
