As far back as 2016, there were plans for Common Law community Officers/Constables to be trained up and to protect people and property against State Police corruption and abuse of power. The concept established itself in its complete fullness last year, meetings took place, many conversations were had and a collective of people from different groups and diverse backgrounds came together and founded the Lawful Observers – for the purpose of creating a community policing ‘by the people for the people.”
To put things simply Lawful Observers observe the police, record what is happening and if needed use what is observed to hold them accountable for their actions, compliance with the law including bringing about prosecutions.
“Policing by consent” is actually the real foundation in law by which the Police affect their current duties. This perspective can shift the identification so that ‘Police are the Public Servants who serve us and the Public are the Police who are Policing the Police’.
Our aim is for the formation of a national organisation of Lawful Observers that ensures a well-trained, well-disciplined, and proactive establishment of volunteers who can progressively take control of law enforcement in the absence of the police doing so.
Our Lawful Observer courses are designed and developed by ex-police and qualified trainers, and accredited & certified by Highfield Qualifications, the main awarding body in the UK. It can be used by NGO’s who work within the rule of law principles, Enforcement Agents, Private Security, and private individuals. This makes us credible and attractive to current service men and women who are waking up and disillusioned by the force in existence today.
By training to become a Lawful Observer, you are being given an opportunity to be a part of – and co-create – a well-disciplined, well-trained, and proactive private security & prosecution service, for and by the people. You will know your enemy, know how to defend your rights, and hold perpetrators accountable. It is designed to empower you whilst dis-empowering the police.
Learn the art of criminal prosecution, the loopholes and weaknesses in Statute law and common law, to empower yourself to fight the forces of tyranny being imposed upon us whilst protecting people and property, in a lawful and responsible manner.
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?
As a ‘Lawful Observer,’ you are asked to confront and report crimes and other issues of importance, especially where the police have refused to act. A ‘Lawful Observers’ evidence and willingness to give testimony will serve to achieve successful criminal and civil prosecutions where necessary. Identifiable criminality perpetrated by magistrates, bailiffs, civil servants, politicians, and the police services will be brought into the public domain and be robustly challenged via every possible legal and civil remedy.
This must be done responsibly, lawfully, and above all peaceably. By way of necessity, it is vital for ‘Lawful Observers’ to be aware of current Statute Law in several areas. A clear and concise understanding of the widely accepted law, as it is interpreted today, will aid in the identification and proper evidencing of incidences and offences committed by establishment agencies. Without this ability, it will not be possible to achieve successful prosecutions. Being prepared and well informed, provides the best form of defence if unlawful or disproportionate actions are being taken against the greater public.
Our courses are a mix of online and on site [in person] over two days in person/on-site and one day online or bitesize modules. We hold training around the country in groups of 20+ people [ideally], to make it as efficient and effective as possible.
If you have a large community group forming, or are part of a Freedom network or hub or a Stand in the Park, there are distinct advantages in training large groups in localised areas. To be empowered in setting the new standard with confidence and competence, will bring you closer together to continue to develop your new knowledge and skills whilst saving on costs.
We have a venue in Manchester, Southend, and South London, which may require some travel to, or we can look to arrange a venue near you. Our trainers are flexible with groups on discount/subsidies and dates, and if you have a small number already interested, we can arrange dates and a venue and promote it more widely to increase our numbers.
Courses are run by Dave Eden who joined London Metropolitan Police Service in 1982 and retired in the rank of Sergeant with Hertfordshire Constabulary in 2009. Throughout his career, he kept detailed accounts of racism, homophobia, sexism, misconduct, and malfeasance within Police services, and continues to work to try and expose those responsible for these actions today.
Dave Eden has recently released a book called ‘Nut and Gut’ which in detail exposes these crimes and issues. Dave is also a member of the UK National Union of Journalists and has contributed to multiple national newspaper articles and also heavily influenced the ‘Lawful Observers’ training package.

Dave said “I became a Lawful Observer student/volunteer so that I could deepen my understanding and intellectual appreciation of how both Common Law and state legislative statutes influence our daily lives and also to learn what we can do, lawfully and honourably to protect our inalienable human rights.”
“Undertaking the Lawful Observer training has really opened my eyes to what ‘Policing by [Public] consent’ is meant to look like, and how it’s vital that the public are actively involved to ensure the Police code of ethics are being upheld and that we support our Policemen and women to carry out their duties lawfully.
“The Lawful Observer training informed me how Policing best practice is actually via something called “due process”, it has taught me what is really meant by “duty of care” and the “impartiality in the service of the law.”
“All this helped me to realise that as a community we do have a responsibility to assist and support our policemen and women and it is our important duty to hold those constables / officers accountable if they stray from due process when Policing.”
“Personally, attending the Lawful Observer training has strengthened my knowledge of our rights, given me the confidence to stand up for these rights, and the knowledge of how to conduct myself in a peaceful and assertive manner when dealing with these issues in public.”
