OXON: Changes to the law on councils using covert investigation techniques will not affect Oxfordshire County Council’s methods, councillors have been reassured.
Under new additions the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA), the Government is seeking to regulate the use of certain techniques by authorities.
Safer and stronger communities scrutiny committee chairman Lawrie Stratford said: “I think it’s reassuring we haven’t had to change our processes.”
