Initial Collision Scene Management
The Road Death Investigation Manual tells us that ‘The actions taken by the first officers attending the scene of a collision are critical to the success of any future potential investigation’.
This unique course will afford the road policing officers first on the scene of a serious collision, the best opportunity to ensure that the integrity of the full investigation is protected.
Initial Collision Scene Management Course
At the end of the course students will be confident in their approach to road incidents and able to deal with the multiple challenges that they will face in the early stages of an investigation. They will be able to ensure that the scene or scenes are managed safely, give effective advice on which resources are needed, identify witnesses and suspects as well as identify and secure vital evidence.
The course recognises that not all incidents lead to major investigations but the models used throughout also provide a sound basis for confident handling of lower-level incidents as well as the firm foundation skills and legal knowledge that are a necessary part of any serious investigation.
