The Federation is hosting a seminar this summer to help inform officers what to do and what to expect should they be involved in a police contact incident – and there are only 50 spots left.
Speakers will include Mark Aldred – the lawyer who successfully defended PC James Holden in a dangerous driving case. PC Holden was a Hampshire Police officer who was accused of putting innocent people at risk during a pursuit through Portsmouth.
Steve Howson – an expert in Post Incident Management and Procedures – and Federation representatives will also be on hand , talking about their own experiences.
Ned Liddemore, discipline lead for the Federation said: “Following on from experiences at police contact incidents it is apparent that some officers are unaware of what they should and should not say if they are approached for an account of what has happened.
“It is vitally important that our colleagues seek legal/federation advice BEFORE providing any account should they be involved in a death/serious injury contact incident.
“We are not here to obstruct the process in any way and an account will be given to investigators following advice.”
