David Wilson is Professor of Criminology and the founding Director of the Centre for Applied Criminology at Birmingham City University. Prior to taking up an academic appointment in 1997, he was a Prison Governor and – at 29 – became the youngest governor in England. He worked at Grendon, Wormwood Scrubs and at Woodhill – where he designed and ran the 2 units for the 12 most violent prisoners in the country. This brought him into contact with virtually every recent serial killer. David regularly appears in the print and broadcast media as a commentator and presenter.
