Wanted Persons

This policy and supporting procedures provide direction to ensure that persons who are ‘wanted’ by Sussex Police are pursued and apprehended in a timely manner and brought to justice. An individual may be wanted for one of many reasons, for instance: subject of a court issued arrest warrant or named as a suspect in a criminal investigation. This policy makes reference to the various ‘wanted’ types, and provides clear instruction on how each should be managed. Criteria for the publication of photographs of a wanted person (WantPer) are also included in this document.
