Government / Legal / Compliance


PCC are proud to offer consultancy and service to government, local, state and Federal as well as the legal field where we’re often called upon to provide ‘expert opinion’ documents in legal matters and for a variety of clients, including coronial inquests. Social, economic and political influencers and pressures are constantly impacting upon our communities and presenting challenges and difficulties for those working within the front-line government sector. In recognising this PCC offers a number of training programs each tailored to meet the needs of the particular working environment but all with one aim;

  • To increase the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of front-line staff who have the potential to be involved in confrontational situations involving aggression, violence and higher threats of force.

  • To train staff in prevention, detection, response, resolution and recovery from incidents.
  • To reduce the occurrence of emotional and physical workplace injuries

  • To reduce lost time injuries and associated costs. To reduce incidents of litigation.

City of Whitehorse, 2020

This has really helped me recognise areas where I would have gone wrong and to sharpen my perception when arriving on scene. I would like to think I would have more wits about me rather than entering into a situation that could potentially be very dangerous with tunnel vision. Thoroughly enjoyed this session. Thanks
