Targeting the risk (6998)

Within six months, all chief constables should either satisfy him or herself that they have completed, or complete, a retrospective review of the certificate holders’ continued suitability to have access to or possession of firearms in the case of section 1 firearms and shotgun certificates issued before the Home Office guidance was updated in relation to the on-going monitoring of the activity of a certificate holder or associates. This review should extend to all such activity which may give rise to concern for public safety.
