Police Disclosure Protocol
Date:14 SEP 2006

The national police protocol referred to at September [2006] Fam Law 806 has now been publicly launched by the Government. The objectives of the protocol are as follows:

  • To provide timely advance notice to the police of the existence of family proceedings and level of information being sought.
  • To enable the police to indicate in advance what evidential material is or may be available and highlight any difficulties with disclosure of the information required.
  • To assist the court and the parties in framing workable, standard directions directed to the police without undue delay.
  • To encourage early disclosure of full and frank information between the police, the parties and the court.

All the relevant documents including a pilot evaluation report are available on http://www.dca.gov.uk/family/famfr7.htm. See October [2006] Fam Law for the full news article.
