Kidnapping for ransom (extract) - Police Manual chapter
Kidnap for ransom offences are high‐risk, fast‐moving investigations that require an immediate yet careful Police response. This chapter applies to all staff who may need to respond to an initial complaint of kidnap for ransom. Some parts of this chapter have been considered not appropriate for release and, if requested, would be withheld under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act). In this chapter, the relevant sections of the Act that would apply have been identified.
