Case Management / Apprehension Process
The second part of the apprehension process is to identify and deliver forthwith to the police any person apprehended. This process ensures the back up of information and evidence and that such evidence is obtained and recorded by police in the event that a party makes a false allegation pertaining to their involvement at a later date. In the course of a civil suit being commenced against anyone involved in the apprehension process, police will be able to attend and give evidence pertaining to their observations of the apprehended person and evidence.
