Keeping up the PACE


February 3, 2017



HAPPA are Hosting a CPPD Training Day to be held at Shores Hey Farm, Wednesday 5th April 2017  9.15am – 4.30pm £160 + VAT inclusive of lunch. The course is aimed at those within the Welfare Sector involved in an investigatory role. It is essential that staff and volunteers responsible for the promotion and prevention of cruelty and neglect are fully conversant with the legislation within the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE).
It is important that those who investigate complaints are fully aware of their accountability and how it is significantly linked to giving evidence in a prosecution case. Those working in partnership with organisations that enforce the legislation within the Animal Welfare Act 2006 will benefit greatly and add value to a multi-agency collaborative approach.
The training day is open to anyone within the industry who is linked to gathering evidence, recording accurate and detailed information, taking necessary action. Those connected to investigating complaints of cruelty must adopt the best and most professional approach.
This one day course is being delivered by Food and Farming Compliance Ltd. and will explain the relevant law, procedure and best practice involved in all areas, incorporating recent legislative changes, scenarios and examples.
The course is also relevant to Local Government Officers, the staff of Central Government Departments and Agencies responsible for any aspect of Criminal Law Policy. It will also be relevant to Solicitors and Legal Department staff involved with the conduct, care and control of criminal cases.
