Yesterday, Wednesday, 16th September 2015, Roman Cooper, CEO of local security firm Allcooper was ‘arrested’ by Sgt Simon Clemett of Gloucestershire Constabulary as part of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust’s Jail and Bail fundraising event.

Roman’s challenge was to raise as much as he could in bail to be released by the end of the day!


Roman said: “At Allcooper, we are proud to protect homes and businesses in Gloucestershire with our alarms and security systems, and by working with local charity, Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, it has meant we’ve been able to help protect our county’s wildlife and habitats too. I’m extremely grateful to everyone who has donated to my bail fund so far - even those who want me to stay locked up for as long as possible! I’m delighted that the money raised is going to such a great cause.”


“We are delighted to lend a hand to support this fundraising event.” Said Sgt Simon Clemett, who is one of the Constabulary’s Rural and Environmental Crime Liaison Officers and will be arresting Roman on the day. “The Trust runs a project called Brighter Futures that targets young offenders and those out of work by giving them skills in conservation so they can confidently re-enter the workforce.”
