European Arrest Warrants

HMIC has received a commission from the Home Secretary to audit Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) data on incoming and outgoing European Arrest Warrants since 2009/10; to test SOCA’s assurance that there is no detrimental impact on public protection as a result of the error identified in data capture; and to provide assurance around SOCA’s new Case Information Management System.

We are currently scoping this piece of work and will confirm terms of reference with the Home Office in due course.
