Benefits for the police forces are as follows:
There isn’t a police force in the country which hasn’t felt the effects of plant and agricultural theft over the past few years. Since the theft of cars has become much more difficult without being able to gain access to the keys, criminals have turned their attention to softer targets. And targets don’t get much softer than plant machinery.
With an often one key fits all policy, No compulsory registration, no compulsory insurance, no documentation, no MOT’s, no compulsory licence permit to drive, lack of tracking devices, low police awareness etc etc. The list is endless, which is why it is so attractive to criminals. The theft of machinery also facilitates other crime such as money laundering, ATM thefts, even terrorism!
It is very unlikely that technology such as ANPR will help in the detection of this type of crime. Once a machine has been stolen the best chance of recovery is usually within the first 48 hours and this is where the well trained police officer comes in!
This course will provide the officer with the knowledge to select, and correctly identify a piece of suspect machinery, whether it be on patrol, road check, raid or port.
This course would appeal to a wide sector of personal within law enforcement such as roads policing, ports, customs, FIB, PCSOs, SOCO, vehicle examiners, etc. After the course, each officer will leave having the confidence to stop, examine and deal with a piece of plant or agricultural machinery effectively.
This is the ONLY level 3 accredited course of its type with the internationally recognised examination body EDI (Education Development International), and as such gives credibility to a police officer in an interview or courtroom situation.
The course runs over 2 days and is a mix of theory and practical. Students are required to fill out a workbook, and sit an end of course multiple choice examination.
The cost of the course is £260 ex VAT per delegate. To book onto the course, please contact us via email on email@example.com or contact AiTS directly, places are filling quickly, so be quick!
