Max Hill QC
Director of Public Prosecutions

Rt Hon Suella Braverman QC MP
Attorney General

2 October 2020

Dear Attorney,

Sections 71 to 74 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005

I write further to my letter of 3 October 2019 to your predecessor, which related to the number of agreements made under sections 71 to 74 of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 (SOCPA).

In the interests of transparency, the CPS publishes the number of such agreements entered into on an annual basis. I am now writing to inform you of the latest numbers of agreements entered into between 1 May 2019 and 30 April 2020. These are set out in the table below:

SOCPA Agreements: 1 May 2019 - 30 April 2020

SOCPA SectionNumber of Agreements
s.710
s.720
s.731
s.745
TOTAL6

Collation of these figures is reliant on manual reporting and whilst we have endeavoured to produce figures that are as accurate as possible, this data is subject to human error.

This letter will be published on the CPS website alongside those previously sent concerning the use of SOCPA agreements.

Yours sincerely,

Max Hill signature
