How do you collect evidence from a battlefield? A group of police officers and military personnel recently learnt such skills at a course run in Vicenza, Italy.
A group of law enforcement personnel recently undertook a course in Battlefield Evidence Collection. The training, organised by the NATO Stability Policing Centre (NSPCoE) in Vicenza, Italy, was focused on counter-terrorism. It aimed to provide tactical units (both law enforcement and military) with basic skills and knowledge in incident scene preservation and in managing and collecting information and material. In particular, it focused on how these practices can strengthen the ability of civilian criminal justice actors to investigate, prosecute and adjudicate terrorism cases.
The course was funded by the US Department of State and took place from 29 November to 3 December 2021.
The participants came from NATO partner Countries Algeria, Bahrain, Jordan, and Tunisia.
