This is an intensive 5 day course which is aimed at students new to a management role which involves the use of covert law enforcement tactics. The increasing sophistication of organised crime and the growth in the digital intelligence and investigations environments requires a professional approach towards the deployment of covert tactics.

Course rationale

External scrutiny in relation to surveillance and human rights requires law enforcement agencies to have a clear appreciation of their obligations in term of justification, proportionality and necessity when using covert tactics to ensure public confidence is maintained and criminal justice outcomes are not compromised.

During this course the range of covert options in the human, technical, surveillance, open source, cyber/digital and communications data environments will be explored. The need for clear aims and objectives and a defined set of strategies to manage operational activity, covert collection and intelligence management along with operational security will be explained. An operational case study scenario will be used to reinforce the learning outcomes of the course.
