According to the head of the City of London’s police force, Britain’s departure from the EU will leave it “on the back seats” on intelligence-sharing arrangements.
Ian Dyson is the Commissioner of City of London Police. He warned the UK’s impending exit from the Europol joint policing agency could affect his ability to apprehend criminals overseas.
The warning is especially acute for policing London’s Square Mile financial district. It is a target for large-scale economic crimes by organisations with an international presence.
In response to a question from Business Insider at a media briefing this week, Dyson described how an exit from Europol would detract from the “richness” of intelligence available to his officers.
