§ Mr. Charles Clarke
National Police Training liaises with the military on a regular basis and there is some overlap in training provision, especially in relation to exercises with specialist areas of military activity. A 83W senior officer from the Armed Services generally attends the Strategic Command Course at Bramshill and senior military personnel attend other seminars and events from time to time.
Apart from this there are few other arrangements for shared training. We are aware of some instances where army dog-handlers have been trained alongside police dog-handlers and we understand that some army staff have attended courses at the National Training Centre for Scientific Support to Crime Investigation in County Durham.
