It is estimated that the contracting out of all Warrant of Arrest work to Approved Enforcement Agencies (AEAs) has the potential to deliver savings in resource of over £25m over the initial term of the contract (5 years). This includes Warrants of Arrest currently undertaken by Civilian Enforcement Officers as well as Warrants of Arrest already undertaken by AEAs.
