The aim of this policy is to ensure a consistent approach to extradition using the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) or outside the European Union under a relevant bilateral treaty; multilateral convention; Commonwealth Scheme; or an extradition request made by the United Kingdom under Royal Prerogative to a particular state.
The purpose of this policy is to outline the way in which Surrey Police will respond to requests from other agencies to conduct welfare checks on individuals that they believe to be vulnerable for some reason or another.
The aim of this policy and associated guidance is not to be prescriptive or define the Harm's way threshold, as the decision to intervene in high risk situations must rely upon the judgment and integrity of the individual officer, taking account of all the variables in circumstances, the facts available to them at the time and the perceived risk.
This policy provides comprehensive guidance and direction for officers on how to deal with incidents of death or serious injury in or following custody or following contact with police and includes the implementation of Post Incident Management. In the case of firearms related incidents, this means where shots have been discharge by police or where an investigation into the Police action is being conducted.
This document outlines Force Policy relating to immigration issues in compliance with the Immigration Act 1971, the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 and the Immigration (Registration with Police) Regulations 1972.
