Qualified Search Controllers, Search Managers and Search Trainers
One of the comments made following my piece on getting the search controllers assignment right was that a database of qualified search controllers and managers would be useful to “trainees” [for want of a better word...]
In truth what Johnnie Walker actually said was;
Rob, could you collate and list the qualified Search Controllers within ALSAR, so that people know who to speak to for help? (letâ€™s not discuss whether this is an ALSAR function rather than a Re-search issue; JFDI!) [Read it here ...]
Unfortunately I do not have the time to find e-mail addresses for all the teams and waste time discussing with any of them whether this is a suitable activity, whether this comes under data protection and so on. This is not to say I’m adverse to collating such information – which let’s face it would be extremely useful to so many people and organisations.
So, from today, I will be keeping a database of search controllers, search managers and search trainers/instructors within the UK (or I suppose available in the UK).
If you as an individual wish to be on this database, (or if your team/unit wishes all its qualified members to be on the database), drop me an e-mail with details of your qualifications, courses taken and/or courses you can teach. If you include your contact details (along with which way you prefer to be contacted!) that would be helpful too!
I promise that this information will be kept in the strictest confidence and only released to members of recognised SAR teams/organisations and/or police forces if you agree.
It has been pointed out that my e-mail address is not published on the website anywhere – and I intend it to stay that way! If you do not have my e-mail address, put a comment asking for it and I’ll e-mail you! Anything else?
