Authorising an undercover officer

The scenario and all references to persons, places, vehicles or other entities are fictitious. This demonstration should neither be construed as legal advice nor believed to reflect accurately how a police undercover officer may be deployed.

It is designed to demonstrate how a complex decision-making scenario may be presented. It is not designed to be a stand-alone product (though it may be used that way) but as part of a blended learning solution possibly as an activity to be completed alone before a classroom discussion where further reflection can take place.

Some of the interactions are disabled and replaced by placeholder text or objects for no other reason than they would activate live web links that would collate data. For obvious reasons this demonstration has no need (and does not) collect any data you may input whilst reviewing it.

In this module you’re invited to take the place of a senior authorising officer considering whether or not to grant the use of an undercover officer in a developing scenario.

You’ll read realistic (though not real) documentation. At times you will be invited to record your considerations but, unlike the real module, you won’t be able to compare your considerations with a group of experts.

You’ll see the consequences of each decision and proceed through the scenario.

This complex module demonstrates:

  • embedding PDF documents;
  • links to live websites;
  • making, saving and printing notes at any time for personal use and use later in the module;
  • a reference library that reveals only those documents relating to the route you have taken through the module;
  • a live chat link to enable communication with your instructor (disabled in this demo but incorporated to show that elearning does not mean that a student need be isolated from an instructor whilst engaged in the activity); and
  • feedback specific to the decisions you have made.

Not included in this demonstration is the ability to print a certificate and to complete a survey at the end of the module.
