unstar this property answer text <p>Under the Firearms Act 1968, which applies to England, Wales and Scotland, firearm and shotgun certificate administration is a matter for the chief officer of police for the area in which the applicant lives. The time taken to process a firearm or shotgun application can vary as the chief officer must take into account the need to manage risk and ensure public protection.</p><p>The Policing and Crime Bill, which is before Parliament, introduces a power to issue statutory guidance to the police in relation to firearms licensing. Additionally, the Bill as amended during Lords Committee provides for automatic temporary extension to the validity of expired certificates if a police decision on a timely application for renewal remains outstanding. These measures should lead to improved response times and consistency across forces.</p><p>The possession of firearms is subject to separate legislation in Northern Ireland.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Face coverings can be worn in public places for a variety of legitimate reasons, and there are already preventative and reactive police powers to remove face coverings in public order situations, including hunts. In particular, under section 60AA of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, a police officer in uniform can require any person to remove any item which the officer reasonably believes is being worn wholly or mainly for the purpose of concealing their identity. Section 60AA also enables a police officer in uniform to seize any item which they reasonably believe any person intends to use to conceal their identity</p><p><br> These powers only apply in the locality and for the period for which an authorisation under section 60 or section 60AA of the Act has been given by a police officer of the rank of inspector or above. An inspector’s authorisation lasts for a maximum period of 24 hours, unless a police officer of the rank of superintendent or above authorises their use for a further 24 hours</p><p><br> A refusal to remove an item when required to do so under section 60AA is punishable by a fine of up to £1,000 and/or one month’s imprisonment<br> <br> The Policing and Crime Bill, which will receive Royal Assent shortly, strengthens the reactive ability of the police by amending section 60AA to provide for an inspector to give an oral authorisation where it is not practicable to give a written authorisation.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Local police forces are in the best position to identify and respond to issues around prostitution and sex work in their area, including ‘pop-up’ brothels. Forces are supported by clear operational guidance for policing prostitution and sexual exploitation. The guidance is clear that where indoor premises are identified, the safety and welfare of those working in brothels, investigation of coercion and exploitation, and reducing the impact to local communities must all be taken into account.</p><p>It is illegal to keep a brothel, or to allow premises to be used as one. The law does not distinguish between types of brothel, and we will continue to ensure that police forces have the powers they need to identify and close down these brothels. Prosecutions for brothel keeping offences have risen, from 99 in 2014-15 to 111 in 2015-16.</p> more like this
