Course description

Advising At The Police Station - Core Knowledge & Skills

Whether you're just starting out or have been doing it for some time there are certain skills and a ‘core’ knowledge that you must possess in order to do the job effectively. It's really all about the ‘room for manoeuvre’ of a client, the circumstances in which he can refuse to do something and the ramifications, later on, if relevant. We all bring our own unique way of advising the client to the job in hand but it does no harm, once in a while, just to remind ourselves of a few dos and don’ts.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course will be of benefit to anyone involved in advising and assisting clients at the police station stage.
