The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA)

A local authority approached TFS for support as they were experiencing a high failure rate in the number of prosecutions against illegal fly tipping.

The problem engaged with a number of public sites and highways. The client was using surveillance techniques to monitor and identify people, but was experiencing a low conviction rate as the procedures were being inappropriately applied.

TFS worked with this client to correctly interpret the rules and regulations governing surveillance operations. This information was then delivered to staff through a series of workshops.

The outcome of the consultancy resulted in a significant increase in the number of successful prosecutions and increased staff confidence levels.
