RIPA Statistics

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA). In the course of its statutory duties the Council is required to protect the public from unlawful criminal activity and harm. RIPA permits the Council to obtain private information about someone that is necessary, proportionate and compatible with human rights whilst being non intrusive.

The Council can apply RIPA's guidelines and codes for covert surveillance, communications data and CHIS (covert human intelligence source).
