Management of Serious Crime Investigative Development Programme 

 

Management of Serious Crime Investigative Development Programme (MSCIDP)

The Management of Serious Crime Investigative Development Programme (MSCIDP) is a College of Policing three week course which is a mandatory qualification  for all Senior Investigating Officers of the future.

The course is frequently delivered in house by police forces and is a combination of presentations and guest speakers. The learning meets National Occupational Standards for managing serious and complex crime investigations and is underpinned by College of Policing Authorised Professional Practice.

 

MSCIDP – delivery

Sancus can offer police forces assistance with delivery of this programme. Eddie Thistlethwaite OBE has recently retired from Lancashire Constabulary as a Detective Superintendent. A hugely experienced homicide investigator, Eddie is also a qualified trainer having delivered and presented a number of innovative and unique training products to senior detectives from various forces.

Eddie will work with the host force to develop the programme to meet local needs and liaise with guest speakers to ensure a lively and professional learning experience. As well as local experts a number of guest speakers can also be arranged.

 

MSCIDP – outcomes

The delivery of the MSCIDP will meet all the College of Policing Learning outcomes. There will be presentations from varied speakers on subjects including ethics and policy making, investigating child death; witness care, file and court preparation, family liaison, victim personal statement and restorative justice. The course will culminate in the final week when student learning is consolidated and tested in to an interactive  exercise delivered either using Hydra or as a paper feed.

 

MSCIDP – feedback

The training delivery Eddie has undertaken includes the three week MCCIDP and he has received glowing feedback from students. The Lancashire Constabulary Head of Crime, Sue Clarke, states;

“Eddie Thistlethwaite is a vastly experienced Senior Investigating Officer who played a key role in refining and delivering the regional MSCIDP course, helping produce a great product that developed our next generation of senior investigators.”

Whilst a student on Ed’s last course, commented;

“We really appreciated Eddie’s credibility and SIO experience but above that his enthusiasm and humour that made it such an engaging and informative course. He even extended his police career by two days to complete the course with us!”

 

The delivery of the MSCIDP can be achieved as a partnership

between the host force and Sancus Solutions.
