New Release: Evidence Gathering from Financial Institutions

One of the most important aspects of any investigation is the lawful search and seizure of evidence. Evidence Gathering from Financial Institutions is designed to help investigators develop their skills at preparing and executing search and seizures in the financial crimes domain. Developed by RCMP Learning and Development Branch in collaboration with the RCMP Departmental Security Branch, this course is now available (in both French and English) to a national police audience on the CPKN portal.

Using scenario-based examples and supporting resources, this four hour online course provides investigators (police officers and civilian employees) with a solid foundation in the applicable policy and case law surrounding evidence gathering tools. Though it is not a course in drafting per se, it is designed to enhance investigator skills in the preparation of applications for Production Orders, Section 487 Warrants, General Warrants and related Assistance Orders.
