I hope you are all well and negotiating the Covid-19 lockdown landscape.

As I am not able to deliver face to face training sessions, I am helping to support health and safety regulators with online training. I am providing this 40 min virtual session PACE in a Health and Safety Context free of charge to help you to maintain your CPD. It’s a session that I recently gave to IOSH South Midlands Branch members and I hope you will find it interesting and useful.

Although it is health and safety related, because it deals with PACE, it is relevant to all involved in criminal investigations including food safety, trade standards, planning, environmental crime etc.

It covers in general…

1. Origins of PACE

2. Using PACE in your investigations

3. Interviews under caution

4. CPS Code for Crown Prosecutors

5. Top tips!

Please feel free to share with colleagues and check web pages for future CPD sessions.
