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.


Looking Back on 2019

Looking back it’s been a busy 12 months. I finally got round to launching my Working With PACE day long course designed specifically for local authority officers. Those attending worked in health and safety, food safety, planning, trading standards, licensing, housing etc. I had ex police officers attending and commented on how useful the course was as it explained how local authorities apply PACE. I also got round to sorting out my logo and began publishing articles on practical application of PACE (I’ll make these widely available on my website). I inspected food traders at Glastonbury and continued to assist colleagues with more complex investigations.
