In accordance with guidance issued by The Association of Chief Police Officer (ACPO), we will not release information to third parties when an investigation is ongoing or a matter is being considered or pursued for prosecution¹.
¹The exceptions to this are:
- An individuals own statement.
- Information required to be released under a Court Order.
- Custody Records
- Occurrence Summary
The Public Prosecution Service (PPS) is the prosecuting authority within Northern Ireland and information subject to the pending prosecution is ordinarily shared through the process of disclosure.
If in doubt about the release of a specific document please contact your Regional OCMT for advice.
