Police advice on hunting incidents

Police advice


The police are governed by their directive from the NPCC. If you have ever taken the time to fully read “Police Operational Advice on Hunting (Directive), you will fully understand why police fail to uphold the law on hunting.


Warning : The disproportionate biased operational advice is institutional prejudice, targeting those people (public) who monitor hunts, while failing to mentioning all the laws that hunts break and include operational advice in dealing with hunts and their supporters who break the law.


This document “Operational Advice on Responding to Hunting Incidents” (Police Hunting Directive), was written by DCC Paul Netherton (Devon and Cornwall Police).
Please also note : DCC Paul Netherton team were the leading officers investigating the Hunting office webinars.


The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) with the College of Policing has agreed to these revised guidelines being circulated to, and adopted by, Police Forces in England, Wales & Northern Ireland.
