Overview

This summer saw new codes of practice to both PACE and RIPA. The changes will have an impact both operationally and corporately and will impact on policy and procedures.

This training day will provide delegates with the required knowledge of the changes and where they may impact on procedure. It will also demonstrate that the delegates are fully up to date with the procedural legislation for continual professional development.

The PACE changes will impact on all operational staff that are likely to interview suspects as it is likely that nearly all interviews will now be done by audio recording as opposed to written.

The RIPA changes will impact corporately and will also affect the Policy which will need amending.  This session will cover all the necessary areas and how they impact on the operational part of RIPA.  A management of the data will need to be implemented corporately and operationally.  The consequences are greater under this current guidance due to the changes in what is an error and the types of errors.
