Jim Gamble: ‘Some of those who pontificate in NI today about human rights and wrongs would be blushing if the things they said or did were exposed’

After a distinguished career in policing, Jim Gamble (61), who was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in 2008, now runs the Belfast-based INEQE Group, which works to make the online world safer for children. He tells Editor-at-Large Gail Walker why he ended up with a juvenile caution, how he coped with the murder of colleagues in the RUC, about his work in Special Branch and the pain of losing his sister Dawn to cancer last year.

Q. Your father, James, and mother, Lillie, were in the RAF, and as a boy you travelled extensively as they moved to different postings.

A. We lived around the UK and, for three years, lived in Singapore where I’d a dingo, an Australian dog, and a spider monkey called Suki. When I was nine, my dad was sent back to Bishopscourt in Northern Ireland and we lived in Newcastle. From there we moved to Wales.

Q. You’ve never spoken publicly about getting a juvenile caution... what happened?
