Police Data Protection for Non DPOs Intermediate

Training Course for policing staff that are accountable for working with personal data.

Course Description

Given the critical role of Data Protection within law enforcement, this intermediate level course is tailored for personnel across various roles within police forces. As the first line of defence against potential breaches, both officers and management play a crucial role in upholding the integrity of personal and sensitive information.  

This course is not about us reading the legislation to you, but rather guiding you on how to understand and effectively apply it to create a culture of awareness and responsibility, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the data we handle. 

This intermediate level of training will focus on ensuring that staff comprehensively understand Data Protection principles and can effectively implement them in their daily duties. Building a robust security culture is essential in the context of policing, and delegates will gain insights into understanding and applying data protection policies that support responsible information sharing which is a vital component of delivering effective public safety services. 


On-site Course Delivery

All on-site courses are to be held at a venue arranged by the client. Advent IM can arrange a venue and the cost will be passed to the client.

You can combine your Data Protection Intermediate and Advanced Training to a 4 day course at the cost of £6,950.

What Our Clients Say About Intermediate Data Protection Training

“The course will help in so many ways. In particular the Information / Data Sharing issues that I have come across I can now approach with knowledge and confidence. This will reduce bureaucracy and increase efficiency and effectiveness for me and my teams.”

Greater Manchester Police Greater Manchester Police

“Even though I wasn’t too knowledgeable about data protection before I started, I feel that I know a lot more than I did and do not feel that Mike left anything out as he was an expert and conveying the complicated guidance and legislation.”

South Yorkshire Police South Yorkshire Police

“The Training has substantially increased my knowledge, the course has made me realise that my GDPR and DP training with other organisations has been completely inadequate. It was helpful to have the legislation presented in real-life scenario terms. I now have a better understanding of the spirit of data protection, previously training has focused on the legislation without suitable explanations”
