The officers, from the ranks of Range Forest Officers to Assistant Conservator of Forests, practiced on a realistically set up poacher camp and suspect vehicle to thoroughly and systematically search for evidence against suspected traffickers. After gathering evidence and building their team case files, the trainees defended their cases before a hostile defence lawyer in a mock trial.

Freeland India specialises in hands-on, practice based training for law enforcement personnel. The training in Jharkhand was tailored to deliver maximum amounts of pertinent instruction in a short time period.

“Most wildlife cases in India fail because the prosecution relies on human rather than physical evidence,” says Onkuri Majumdar, Managing Director of Freeland India. “Our trainings focus on creating a strong case that will result in conviction despite unreliable human witnesses, delays and transfers of investigating officers”.
