unstar this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS) does not collate this information at a quarterly level. Data received from Approved Enforcement Agencies indicates that they recovered £28,169,343.39 in fees from Warrants of Control over the period 1<sup>st</sup> April 2018 – 31<sup>st</sup> March 2019. The fee, which varies for different processes is paid by the debtor direct to the AEA on top of their original fine.</p><p> </p><p>The level of fees that an Enforcement agent may levy are set out in The Taking Control of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014, SI 2014 No1 to ensure transparency and consistency.</p><p> </p><p>We take the recovery and enforcement of court fines very seriously. Courts already have the power to issue warrants through enforcement agencies, and we have robust processes in place to ensure enforcement agents comply to the same standards as HMCTS staff.</p> more like this

Current AEAs contracts include provision for the enforcement of Warrants of Control and Warrants of Arrest; the new service contracts will also include provision for Warrants of Arrest currently undertaken by civilian enforcement officers.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Under the current Approved Enforcement Agencies (AEA) contracts the AEA’s are paid £75 for successfully executed Warrants of Arrest. We are in the process of procuring a new set of contracts for AEA services and the Invitation to Tender was released on 1 July 2019. The pricing for Warrant of Arrest services shall be established by this procurement exercise. The price for Warrants of Arrest Services forms part of the evaluation process, through which value for money will be determined. We plan to award contracts in December 2019, with services to commence in May 2020.</p><p> </p><p>We expect these new contracts will save the taxpayer more than £25m over the next five years, every penny of which will be reinvested into the justice system.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>There are currently no full time equivalent vacancies for Civilian Enforcement Officers (CEOs) within Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS). CEOs primarily execute financial penalty arrest warrants and community penalty breach warrants and existing contracts with Approved Enforcement Agencies also provide for the execution of these warrants. This dual approach means there is no requirement for a fixed number of CEOs to ensure this work is undertaken. The number of Civilian Enforcement Officers has reduced over recent years, which reflects a reduction in the number of warrants issued.</p> more like this
