*NEW* Justification Toolkit *NEW*

British APCO understands that the economy is impacting a number of emergency services travel and training budgets. These budgets are either being reduced or eliminated. Regardless of the merits of an event, we understand that you may need to justify the expense and time out from the "day job". To help you with this process, we have prepared this Justification Toolkit and Making the Case Letter (download from the link at the bottom of this page) to present to your supervisor outlining the costs and benefits of attending.
