Investigation Guidance relating to the Criminal Transmission of HIV for police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland
This Guidance developed by the Niational AIDs Trust aims to end inappropriate police investigations and ensure, when they are considered necessary, that police forces and officers investigate allegations of criminal HIV transmission in a way which is:
- consistent with CPS prosecution policy,
- appropriately informed about HIV from both a clinical and a social perspective
- respectful of human rights and confidentiality, and
- which does not prolong an investigation longer than necessary.
