This training programme is essential for any local authority staff member, who as involved in the investigative, enforcement or prosecution stages of a criminal prosecution may be called to give evidence in a hearing or court proceedings.
On completion of this course delegates will have a clear understanding of:
Many statutory agencies grossly underestimate the importance and significance of providing proper training to officers charged with enforcing legislation.
Not only must officers know the law, they need to gain key skills and competencies in its application.
This includes understanding the application of the relevant powers, knowing how to investigate different offences, interviewing witnesses, issuing warnings and if appropriate proceeding to prosecution, applying the rules of evidence and understanding how the criminal justice system works.
This training course will give delegates the practical knowledge and the confidence to greatly improve their ability to meet their civil enforcement and investigation obligations and ensure compliance with relevant legislation.
