The Home Office is continuing the process of taking advice on a range of options from other law enforcement bodies such as police forces, to determine whether a Special Volunteer force within Border Force would provide benefits and bolster existing activity. Until this is concluded no decision will be made on whether BF specials should proceed to a pilot.
