The Criminalisation of Trespass – Latest Update

The Home Office has recently produced draft guidance for Police with regard to the new powers contained in Part 4 of the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. See the link here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1026903/Draft_stat_guidance_UEs.pdf

We believe that this draft guidance will be totally ineffective in avoiding the disastrous consequences of the criminalisation of trespass and we maintain the position taken in our previous blog on this matter.
