Introduction to Investigative Working Practices

Conducting an investigation can be a difficult task.

The type of activity investigators engage in and the material gathered varies depending on whether investigations use the reactive or proactive method.

This 2-day course that examines the principles of investigation and is aimed at both public and private sectors. 

Every investigation is different and may require a different route through the process. 

The quality of the investigation, whether carried out in person or over the telephone, is a significant factor in gathering material that leads to the detection of the individual responsible.

There may be limited opportunities to locate and gather material and it is vital that those who conduct the initial investigation ensure that material is not lost.

Once a case has been allocated to an investigator, it is important that they gather material from whoever took the initial report.

This is an excellent program for those individuals with no formal Investigative training, or those that require their historic skills to be updated.
