Dear Sussex Police,

Can I ask for clarification from yourselves in relation to the usage or practice of PIN'S or EWN 's by Sussex Police Force. Considering you're own policy (578/2019) 14.2 states NOT to be used.
Also the College of Policing review showed that the MET was the last force to do so who ceased using this practice in November 2020.

Yours faithfully,

James othen
