The UK Government’s use of remotely-piloted armed Reaper drones to conduct lethal strikes abroad, without placing the operator at risk of injury or capture, has given rise to considerable concerns of legality, transparency and accountability. Armed drones are not prohibited weapons under international law. However, drone strikes raise serious legal issues, which differ depending on the circumstances in which strikes are carried out.

The next six years marks out the most ambitious period of change since the Judicature Acts of the 1870s.

This presentation looks at the core duties to investigate, identify, and protect; the source of those duties; and their application in situations where the police and the Home Office are most likely to come into contact with victims - enforcement action, immigration crime raids, police stations, prisons, detention centres, screening, immigration procedures, and visa posts.

The main focus is on the claims available to victims of serious crimes against the person. However, I also examine briefly the position of those accused of crimes who experience delay in their exoneration as a result of incompetent investigation.
