The course covers the current practices and procedures used to ensure allegations of fraud and vehicle crime are accepted, and allocated to the most appropriate police force for further investigation.
Practical work-based case studies are used to explain the process of fraud investigations. The course explains how to complete a pro-forma witness statement which has been specifically designed by AVCIS for those reporting vehicle frauds. It also identifies the appropriate content of a statement and what exhibits are needed for submission to AVCIS.

- Gain an understanding of police intelligence gathering, the use of referred intelligence, its reliability and the rules surrounding intelligence dissemination
