There are currently no full time equivalent vacancies for Civilian Enforcement Officers (CEOs) within Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service (HMCTS). CEOs primarily execute financial penalty arrest warrants and community penalty breach warrants and existing contracts with Approved Enforcement Agencies also provide for the execution of these warrants. This dual approach means there is no requirement for a fixed number of CEOs to ensure this work is undertaken. The number of Civilian Enforcement Officers has reduced over recent years, which reflects a reduction in the number of warrants issued.
