File Preparation for Local Authority Prosecutions, Day 1 - public course
Our training programme is delivered by lawyers for local authority staff working in the area of enforcement.
It ensures that local authority staff have a clear understanding of what is required of them during the prosecution process and how to prepare a successful prosecution file from start to finish.
It is specifically designed for those responsible for gathering evidence, interviewing suspects / witnesses, taking and formatting witness statements, recording internal investigations, writing warning letters and reports and preparing prosecution files. Correct prosecution file management enables the legal team / state solicitor / DPP to fully appreciate the complexities of the case, so they may issue just directions on it and ultimately enables the prosecution’s case to stand up to challenge in the courtroom. Poor prosecution file management is often the reason why staff have ‘nothing to show’ for an otherwise successful investigation.
