Essex: Specialist detectives pass on experience
Main article content
Some of our specialist detectives have been passing on their investigative know how to colleagues from other forces.
Captain Katie Miller (left), from the Royal Military Police, spent five days with Detective Inspector Lydia George (right) from our Adult Sexual Assault Investigation Team in the north of the county last month.
The aim was to broaden her exposure to the decision making that takes place during the investigation of serious and complex crimes.
“It has been great to spend some time with several departments across Essex Police to build a closer partnership and to investigate how we can work together more collaboratively in the future.
“Thanks to DI George and her team for hosting me.
“It was good to identify that we work to the same high standards, utilising many of the same practices and procedures.”
DI George said:
“It was very good to have Capt Miller come and join me and build closer partnership working with the Royal Military Police.
“As a force we’re always keen to work with and learn from other forces and partners.
“Through sharing learning and best practice, we are able to better support victims and improve our investigations.”
The Adult Sexual Assault Investigation Team is just one of our specialist teams which investigates sexual offences.
At Essex Police we have a range of teams and roles from firearms to roads policing and from detectives to the Marine Unit.
