We are very pleased to have been selected by Nottinghamshire Police to deliver disclosure training to their front line officers and staff over the next few months.
Zakon Training are pleased to announce that we have been chosen as the appropriate experts to deliver training to officers and staff from Nottinghamshire Police.
This training covers a vital area of police work that has been all too prevalent in the media of late due to perceived failings in the discharge of their duties by police and prosecutors in various areas of the country.
When the Chief Inspector of the Crown Prosecution Inspectorate is on record as saying that the "single most frequent cause" of miscarriages of justice involves police officers' "failure to disclose information which could have assisted the accused", then clearly something is wrong.
The Justice Committee have heard evidence from Wendy Williams, Inspector of HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services, that a failure to train is amongst the key issues affecting the quality of disclosure by the police.
Nottinghamshire Police have recognised the need to provide their officers and staff with the best training possible, and our trainers are experienced practitioners in this field of police work. We have devised a training session designed to enhance the skills of the staff attending the training.
Our aim is to ensure that Nottinghamshire Police staff give the best service possible to the public in the execution of their responsibilities of disclosure of information under the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996.
Please do get in touch if you would also like to utilise the skills of our trainers to enhance the knowledge and abilities of your staff in this area, or any other where we have the expertise to assist.
