These funds are calculated and paid quarterly in arrears to agencies, as soon as possible after the end of each quarter.</p><p>The safer communities fund is not operated by the Home Office but by local police forces. There is an expectation that payments made under ARIS will be used to further drive up performance on asset recovery and, where appropriate, to fund local crime fighting priorities for the benefit of the community.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Government launched the Joint Fraud Taskforce earlier this year. This partnership between government, law enforcement and the financial sector is working in new innovative ways to deliver a more effective response to fraud. The Taskforce is looking at new ways to ensure individuals have the tools and knowledge to protect themselves from fraudsters, including when transferring money online.</p><p>A Joint Fraud Taskforce partner, Financial Fraud Action UK, recently launched a nation-wide fraud prevention campaign ‘Take 5’ which advises that individuals take five minutes to consider what they are being asked to do, especially if being pressured to take an unusual course of action such as transferring funds to an unknown individual. The Taskforce is also working closely with the financial sector to look at how fraud can be designed out of systems such as internet banking, to stop individuals transferring money to a potential fraudster.</p><p>The Government’s Cyber Aware campaign aims to help small business and individuals protect themselves from cyber criminals by adopting simple secure online behaviours such as having a strong password and always downloading the latest software updates. Cyber Aware works with a range of public and private sector partners to embed cyber security advice into a range of every day touch points, including Get Safe Online, whose remit is to help individuals and small businesses safeguard themselves against fraud and other online data threats.</p><p>The Government is also encouraging all businesses which rely on the Internet to adopt the Cyber Essentials scheme to protect themselves against the most common Internet threats. We know the vast majority of cyber attacks exploit basic weaknesses in IT software and systems. Cyber Essentials shows organisations how to address those basics and get a good level of online security in place which all organisations operating online should aim for as a minimum.</p>

However, it is prohibited under international and UK law to remove the nationality of an individual when to do so would leave them without any nationality and, in effect, stateless.</p><p>Where it is not possible to deprive an individual of their British nationality and we cannot prevent their return, the individual will be investigated by the police and prosecuted where there is evidence that they have committed criminal offences. We also have a range of other powers available to protect national security. Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures (TPIMs) give the Security Service and police powers to enforce some of the most restrictive measures available in the democratic world to help manage the risk posed.</p><p>Temporary Exclusion Orders (TEO) were introduced in 2015 and enable the Government to disrupt and manage the return of a British citizen who is reasonably suspected to have been involved in terrorism-related activity outside the UK. The TEO power enables the Government to impose obligations on the individual after their return to the UK, for example regular reporting to a police station or attending appointments on a de-radicalisation programme.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Everyone who returns from engaging in the conflict in Syria or Iraq, whether male or female, must expect to be investigated by the police to determine if they have committed criminal offences, and to ensure that they do not pose a threat to our national security. Where there is evidence that crimes have been committed, those responsible should expect to be prosecuted. However any decision on whether to prosecute will be taken by the police and Crown Prosecution Service on a case by case basis. In addition to seeking prosecution of terrorism suspects, we use a range of tools to manage the threat posed by returners - including imposing travel restrictions for individuals subject to Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures and using Temporary Exclusion Orders to place in-country conditions upon return, including regular reporting to a police station. The majority of those who have returned did so in the earlier stages of the conflict, and were investigated on their return. A significant proportion of these individuals are assessed as no longer being of national security concern.</p>
