UK will opt out of EU policing and criminal justice measures

The Home Secretary has confirmed the UK will opt out of EU policing and criminal justice measures and seek to rejoin those that keep the UK safe.

The Home Secretary announced on Tuesday (9 July) that the UK will opt out of EU policing and criminal justice measures adopted before the Lisbon Treaty came into force.

Theresa May confirmed in a statement to Parliament that the government will seek to rejoin only those measures which help the UK co-operate with its European neighbours to combat cross-border crime and keep our country safe.
