Tavcom Training – part of the Linx International Group of companies which includes the Linx International security consulting business, ARC Training International and Perpetuity Training – has just launched a training course focused specifically on Managing CCTV Investigations. The new course is designed for senior personnel responsible for managing and setting policy and concentrates on the investigation of crimes and incidents captured on CCTV as well as other media.

Beginning in April, the three-day, classroom-based training takes place at Tavcom’s headquarters in Hampshire, with participants attaining a Level Three certificate on culmination of their studies and learning.

Tavcom Training’s executive director Paul Tennent commented: “This is an essential new course that provides the skills and confidence needed to efficiently and effectively handle CCTV investigations. The comprehensive programme shines a light on the roles and responsibilities of personnel when investigating incidents in terms of how to assist the police service, as well as highlighting Codes of Practice and operational guidelines.”

The Managing CCTV Investigations course agenda includes investigating crimes caught on CCTV and other media, managing enquiries where images provide key evidence, details of the CCTV Code of Practice and how they relate to investigations, using CCTV in an ethical manner, privacy, Human Rights and cultural issues, obtaining the best evidential footage and images, investigative strategies for using images during a major enquiry, CCTV ‘trawling’ and obtaining images from social media, using images held by television broadcasters and newspapers, linking suspects in several pieces of footage, producing evidential statements and decision logs, the identification of offenders captured on CCTV, understanding the concept of ‘Super Recognisers’ and their effective use, technology and its use in identification and, last but not least, using CCTV in investigations and briefing prosecutors.

*The Managing CCTV Investigations course costs £795 +VAT per participant and will take place on the following dates: 1719 April, 2628 June, 24 October and 2325 January 2019.
