Evidence Gathering



The Evidence Gathering course is perfect for those who are looking for a foundation level of understanding of how we gather evidence and the differences between intelligence and information within the police, law enforcement, government, and charity sectors.

This programme ensures that delegates are fully familiar the types of evidence, the sources of evidence that may be gathered, and how to correlate and corroborate the evidence within decision-making.

To ensure delegates are able to make sense of the evidence gathering process, the course will look into statement writing and what needs to be included and excluded.
