Maintaining the strong security cooperation the UK currently has with the EU will be one of the Government's top four overarching objectives in the forthcoming negotiations on the UK's exit from, and future relationship with, the European Union. Only two years ago, many of the measures the UK is now due to leave were deemed vital by the then Home Secretary in order to "stop foreign criminals from coming to Britain, deal with European fighters coming back from Syria, stop British criminals evading justice abroad, prevent foreign criminals evading justice by hiding here, and get foreign criminals out of our prisons". In their report, the Committee examine the main tools and agencies that underpin security and police cooperation between the UK and EU, and explore the options available to the Government for retaining or replacing them when the UK leaves the EU.
