Hi all! I maybe over thinking this. I’ve currently got a case file waiting for review by my SGT for a disqual driver. He was stopped a month ago and a VA was arranged. I saw him off duty driving three days before the VA. He has admitted both. I saw him driving again on my rest days. He has said he’ll keep driving. I want to arrest him, interview for when I’ve seen him off duty and look at a remand. Sometimes the custody sgts can be a bit hit and miss and prompt and effect for interview may not be enough. (I’ve had a DP rejected for a high risk DA because I could have VAd them. Ignoring the fact she tried to hide and is NFA…).
Can anyone explain to me the difference in reading PACE through the legislation.gov.uk site and the Codes of Practice on gov.uk ? I'll keep it basic in my example... section 24 powers of arrest on the full legislation website http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1984/60/part/III it is quite clearly section 24 because it says that next to it. However from the Code G codes of practice site https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/117583/pace-code-g-2012.pdf it is under heading 2 (although the title of the heading states Section 24 PACE) What's the difference between the two documents? If you want to look something up should I be using the codes of practice document or the legal document?
