Police guidance that will reshape your work

New guidance will cover custody, detention and rape and sexual offences.

​National guidance should reflect the experience of police practitioners, and we're consulting on a number of areas of work to ensure we produce the best guidance possible to support police officers and staff.

For those working in custody, we're running a consultation on pre-charge bail, which is asking for views on new principles to govern the use of the powers. The consultation closes on 21 July 2014.

We're also running a consultation on new detention and custody guidance, to update current practice and procedures from the moment people are detained. You can respond to this consultation until 12 August 2014.

And we're consulting on new draft guidance on investigating rape and sexual offences on the investigation of these kinds of offences. You can make your views heard until 22 September 2014.
