International crime scene management and policing
This module will provide an overview of Major Crime Investigation within the United Kingdom, including domestic and international applications. This will include outlining the key investigative strategies and approaches in conducting such enquiries. There will be an emphasis on certain crime types such as Homicide, Terrorism & Trafficking. The legislation, policy, guidance and practice that support international cooperation to investigate such cases will be included within the module. Case studies that exemplify such cooperation will also be included.
This module will also reflect on different approaches in crime scene management, with particular focus on techniques used in Belgium but also including further European examples. Different case and scene types will be discussed and the techniques used to retrieve and secure evidence. This module will evaluate both an international policing perspective and an international crime scene management perspective and will outline difficulties associated with these areas and co-operation between them.
