This week KABSEC Training returned to the capital for the first of several upcoming visits to the City of London Police, this one to deliver The Level 3 Award introduction to Crime Prevention. They were welcomed by Inspector Joseph Easterbrook from Sector Policing, Partnership & Prevention Hub, who opened the course and introduced the training and qualification to the candidates.
Fourteen Dedicated Ward Police Officers and two Sergeants attended the training. Day 1 explored the theory of how crime occurs, legislation relevant to their roles and work on ethics , equality and diversity. The officers were invited to select issues which are prevalent in the City and were guided through the use of problem solving process to address them.
Training on Day 2 was led by subject matter expert and practitioner, Kevin Burrows, in the use of security products, who also regularly works within the boundaries of the City of London Policing area. He reflected on their problem solving cases and provided specific crime prevention advice on the relevant security products.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our delivery to the City of London officers who, reassuringly, demonstrated passion and dedication for their roles and their desire to make a difference to the public they serve.
