Recent Contact Police Deaths (DSI)

Recent Contact Police Deaths (DSI) is an essential course for all those in a management or investigative role following a ‘recent police contact’ death.

The Police Service in England and Wales is legally obliged to ensure deaths that occur following direct or indirect contact with the police are robustly and transparently investigated.  This intensive course will cover what does, and does not, constitute such a ‘recent contact death’, how they must be investigated and the interaction with the IPCC and Coroner in their independent scrutiny roles.

This is not just a course about deaths in custody, it covers the full remit of deaths to be referred to the IPCC and follows the journey from discovery and investigation to judicial scrutiny, be it in a Coroner’s Court or elsewhere.

Facilitated by a former Head of PSD  this course will draw on his significant experience in the field to ensure students achieve the greatest possible understanding of the issues involved and have the knowledge and skills to conduct transparent, effective investigations and effectively engage with statutory partners and families of the deceased.

 

 “This was a brilliant course, highly relevant to my role. Guest speakers were highly relevant and gave some very useful information. Ian delivered the course fantastically. As always he is very engaging and helped me to make sense of what appeared to be a very complex definition. This course has certainly given me huge confidence to apply the definition robustly yet correctly and fully justified. A very worthwhile investment of my time and I thoroughly recommend this course.” Norfolk November 2016
