Investigations policy

The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA) regulates how local councils carry out investigations.

Types of investigation include:

  • surveillance – for example, CCTV recordings
  • interception of communications – for example, private emails
  • covert human intelligence sources – for example, someone who forms a relationship with another person to get information
