Cause of concern

HMIC found that in many forces there is a material lack of focus, grip and effective activity directed to apprehending wanted suspects. There are too often inconsistencies and weaknesses in how rapidly forces circulate information about wanted suspects on the Police National Computer (PNC), and too often inadequate efforts are made to apprehend these individuals once the information has been circulated.


Immediately, all forces should review their current procedures for apprehending wanted suspects, assess the number of wanted suspects on the PNC and those whose details have yet to be circulated on the PNC, and take prompt and effective action to apprehend those suspects.
