We are running a RIPA/surveillance law update course in Manchester on 16th October:

This will cover all the changes which come into force on 1st November:

-  The requirement, in future, to seek a Magistrate’s approval before doing any surveillance set out in the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012

-  The new Serious Crime Test for Directed Surveillance

Please feel free to get in touch if you would like to discuss this course further including our in-house option.
