Arising from a *report of the District Solicitor and Monitoring Officer, the Community Policy Development Group had made the following recommendation that: the Council’s RIPA Policy be amended as outlined in section 3 of the report.
The Cabinet Member for Community Well-Being outlined the contents of the report stating that the current policy did not accurately reflect the requirements regarding covert surveillance using communications data, this had been updated within the revised policy along with the use of juvenile covert human surveillance
A query was raised with regard to the number of staff that had received training.
RESOLVED that the Council’s RIPA Policy be amended as outlined in section 3 of the report.
(Proposed by Cllr D J Knowles and seconded by Cllr C R Slade)
Reason for the decision – there is a need for the RIPA policy to be up to date.
