"March 2017 The area I found most useful was the pulling together of the various pieces of legislation to set the context of the ‘Investigation’ discipline and expertise. Also the various operational investigation models were of great benefit."
"March 2017 The practical elements of this course were of great benefit, particularly search techniques and seizure of evidence and maintaining continuity. The understanding of the legislation in particular the Fraud Act and False Accounting were very well covered."
