Tonight’s training exercise was at the beautiful Alderley Edge and was the first night of Party Leader training for five members.
During a search a Party Leader (PL) will be briefed by either the Police Search Advisor or a team Search Manager. They will then lead a team (usually four) including a medic, a radio operator and a scribe. The PL must ensure the health and safety of the group and manage various situations such as the treatment and evacuation of casualties, managing crime scenes, ensuring areas are searched effectively etc.
The ongoing training can take up to twelve months and consists of formal teaching, practical training and continual assessment.
