Along with me on the Katie Martin Show, BBC Radio Solent  was DI Mandy Horsburgh, an officer at Operation Fortress, one of the biggest, most significant stand-alone projects ever to be launched by the Constabulary, with its own 31-strong dedicated investigation and enforcement team made up of officers and staff drawn from across the force. The team investigate the most serious violent drug-related crimes alongside organized criminal groups who pose the most risk to communities. Mandy will be appearing on the panel at CSI Portsmouth 2014.
