Some, like me, are also crime writers themselves. I operated as a detective in pre-PACE days meaning I know about the treatment and interrogation of suspects before the legislative safeguards introduced by the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE).
However, as I was a barrister practising criminal law from 1997 to 2011, I’m also well versed in PACE procedures as well as able to provide valuable insights into courtroom procedures and even what goes on in the privacy of the barristers’ robing room and judges’ chambers.
In case you didn’t know, the robing room is a private area in a court building where barristers change into their court attire – donning the horsehair wig, the gown, stiff winged collar, and bands.
Whatever expert you may need, CCUK has got one. Their areas of expertise cover all of the following:
- Covert policing
- Courtroom procedure
- Internal affairs
- Senior management in the police service
- Custody suite procedures
- Military police
That list is not exhaustive.
In the event, you require such assistance from CCUK, please make the inquiry through its website and not to me directly.
Please feel free to add any general comments below.
This sounds like an excellent service. Even though not listed, it probably does cover fingerprints and biometrics in general. Best wishes.
Yes, I believe it does but that’s not my field of expertise. Thanks for the best wishes.
This is interesting. I wonder if the US has anything like this?
I believe there is, Linda. I’ll get back to you on that.
