Legal & Enforcement training

Environmental crime is a prevalent issue, impacting all areas across the country. Enforcement can be an effective action to tackle this problem.

If managed properly, it can act as a successful deterrent and result in cleaner streets. If managed badly, it can lead to ill-feeling and negative publicity in the press. Our courses steer you through the pros and cons of enforcement, helping you to tackle enforcement issues efficiently and tactfully.

"A clear and concise course, I now have a broader knowledge of legislative tools available to tackle environmental crimes."

- David Campell-Lenagham, Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council
