Police across the UK are well prepared for the country to leave the European Union with or without a deal, the two police chiefs leading law enforcement planning have said.
Preparations for a potential loss of EU tools and powers are now complete. A new unit, the International Crime Coordination Centre (ICCC), created in September 2018 has established a network of officers with expertise in international policing to assist frontline officers in using contingencies in the event of a no-deal EU Exit.
A no deal exit would mean UK law enforcement losing access to the Schengen Information System II (SIS II), the European Arrest Warrant (EAW), the European Criminal Records Information System (ECRIS), Europol and the European Investigation Orders.
