This interactive one-day course is aimed at staff working in the enforcement area who have to prepare prosecution files for Solicitors and the DPP's Office. Ensuring that officers appreciate exactly what is required of them and what is necessary to include in the file from start to finish. This allows their legal team, State Solicitor and/or DPP to fully appreciate the nature of the case and issue directions on it.
Who and why? In many cases the DPP rejects files due to problems such as:
Difficulties with the Evidential Trail
Insufficient information furnished
Inclusion of unnecessary and irrelevant information and documentation
An apparent lack of understanding as to what the case involves on the part of the Investigating Officer
Poor file management is often the sole reason why officers have 'nothing to show' for an otherwise successful investigation. This course is extremely practical in that it will be tailored to suit the individual needs of the officers attending. It will include and place emphasis on the particular area that they work in.
