Simon McKay’s book Covert Policing Law and Practice (OUP, 2011) contains the most comprehensive treatment of Covert Human Intelligence Sources (CHIS) presently in print and has been widely praised.
This important seminar covers every aspect of this unique policing resource which carries with it unique problems. It considers the statutory definition, the problems with this, authorization, operational problems as well as concepts such as “tasked witnesses” and similar terms and civil liability including witness protection. It includes:
• CHIS definition and problems associated with this
• Allan v United Kingdom
• Authorization and problems associated with this (participation in criminality)
• Operational problems: undercover officers, cell deployments, entrapment, CHIS and legal professional privilege
• Civil liability and human rights obligations Delegates attending this event will receive a comprehensive analysis of the law, practice and procedure in relation to CHIS. This will equip them to identify, manage and authorize CHIS in a legally compliant way and alert them to the duties and obligations arising from the use and conduct.
