Reviewing Serious Collision Investigations

The latest College of Policing guidance on investigating road deaths recommends that an appropriate review process should be developed and implemented. The Sancus two day Reviewing Serious Collision Investigations Course is designed to enable forces to carry out this obligation in a constructive and cost effective manner. The course has been developed in accordance with the learning outcomes published in the College of Policing National Policing Curriculum Module “Reviewing Serious Collision Investigations” (Code ENPSX044).  The course will equip delegates with a structure to carry out reviews of fatal road collision investigations which will identify missed investigative opportunities, and make case specific or organisational recommendations as necessary. Building on extensive experience in investigation and reviews the training is delivered by an experienced Road Death Lead Investigator.


What does the Reviewing Serious Collision Investigations Course deliver:

  • The reason reviews need to be carried out
  • The benefits of a professional review
  • The different types of review
  • The review process
  • Preparing and presenting a report
  • Managing the outcomes of a review

The two day course consists of a series of presentations covering the fundamentals of the review process. Presentations will be supported by a scenario based exercise involving the review of a fatal road collision investigation.

Reviewing Serious Collision Investigations Course Feedback

Preston – November 2018

As a Roads Policing Lead Investigator this course has given me the skills to review colleagues investigations as well as giving me food for thought when it comes to my own investigations. An interesting two days and very relevant to my current role. Thank you. SM

Exeter – November 2018

The course was informative and relevant to the role of LIO. I will take a number of learning points back to Force with the view of changing how we investigate road death and implementing best practice. OT

York – April 2017

“The course was insightful and has given me the confidence to take these new skills into the workplace”. “Really good couple of days enhancing my learning to review serious collisions”. MD

Preston – March 2016

“Good course with input encouraged from attendees which assists in improving for the future using best practice from across the country. Good scenario, well presented and understood by the trainer. It is difficult to have more detail to review in the time given, so is about right. Greater content would not allow for the meaningful discussions that ran through the ourse increasing learning abilities for all” AT

“Dave Tonge is clearly a very experienced RP SIO with a good delivery style which assists the learning process. It was a good idea in my opinion to use a real case scenario – this added reality to the classroom process. Thank you”DC

“A wide degree of experience in the room amongst participants and some excellent knowledge sharing. The review process will certainly assist me and new SIO’s to RPU”.  LP
