This programme looks at the obligations placed on non-Police investigators and also the obligations placed on the Police with respect to the Criminal Procedure and Investigation Act 1996. Non-police investigators responsibilities are different, but an understanding of procedures will be an advantage when students are required to investigate offences and present the evidence to the Police in order that a prosecution may follow.


Following the teaching section of this package the student will be invited, given the evidence already collated during the investigation scenario within the Investigative Procedures programme, to declare which material is relevant. The student will also be invited to state how that material should be presented to the Police in a professional manner and in such a way as to cause the minimum ambiguity in the case presentation. By following these suggested guidelines the student will ensure that their investigation is not only efficient but also cost effective in that Police officers will not require to continually be calling to seek more information.

At the end of this programme the student will be familiar with and understand:

The general principles of third party
