Crime Scene Preservation For The Licensed Hospitality Industry Training Course


This presentation is designed to support a niche market within the licensed hospitality industry, by giving learners the skills and knowledge to deal effectively with crime scenes, including communication in emergency situations, scene preservation procedures, crowd management and incident reporting. Often the authorities criticize venue managers for failing to secure vital evidence following an incident at their premises. This session is designed to inform staff how best to do this and thereby demonstrate their support for the licensing objectives.


This presentation is aimed at all employees who, as part of their role are likely to come into contact with either victims, offenders or witnesses to incidents that require Police, Fire service or Local Authority investigation. This really is a presentation for anyone in the hospitality industry, from waiting staff and cleaners through to venue managers or security staff.


Certificate of attendance if required – this may be of benefit to show to a licensing authority that a venue or its security or management have taken some action following an incident, either to prevent Review action or as evidence at such a hearing)
