We're waiting for Katy Marchant to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Devon and Cornwall Constabulary,

Dear Devon and Cornwall Police, I am doing some research for a forth coming newspaper article could you provide me with :

1. Devon and Cornwall Police's Official Guidelines which officers follow when issuing Harassment Warnings with allegations FROM children under 16 years of age. What is the correct protocol and steps that should be carried out.

2. Is it official acceptable and normal practice for Devon and Cornwall police to issue PINs with no investigation, no dates, times or evidence on the hearsay of children under 16?

3. In which types of special circumstances would Devon and Cornwall Police consider issuing PINs based on uninvestigated, unsupported hearsay of children under 16 years of age?

4. Please could you provide official follow up research and data into the effectiveness and impact of issuing PINs FROM children under 16 years of age?

5. In how many of the 2600 PINs issued in the last 3 years by Devon and Cornwall Police have the allegations proved to be vexatious?

6. Have there been any serious events or cases in Devon and Cornwall after PINs have been served?

For instance

a. Homicides
b. Physical violence
c. Escalation of stalking or harassment
d. Further damage to property
