During my tenure as the Chief Surveillance Inspector it was obvious to me that practitioners found it difficult to complete RIPA documents comprehensively. In particular, guidance on proportionality was too general.
I wanted to produce guidance with more detail. But before I could provide examples of what a good document might look like, it was necessary to provide better understanding of the concept and its application.
As a precursor to practical examples I produced this series of videos explaining the application of the legal concept of proportionality.
It’s divided into three main sections:
- A brief introduction and history;
- Things to avoid;
- Things to consider.
This demonstration provides limited access to one video in each section.
I scripted, produced the graphics and animations (using a combination of Camtasia Studio 8 and Articulate Storyline 1) and recorded my own narration.
