The majority of financial penalties enforced by civilian enforcement officers relate to motoring issues, failure to obtain a television licence and other similar matters, often involving defaulters who are among the most vulnerable people in society.
The enforcement staff are subject to the civil service code governing standards of behaviour, have the authority to search premises and place defaulters in custody, and can access sensitive data held on government systems, including the Police National Computer. wrote:

another reference to this story

https://www.thecanary.co/2017/08/01/theresa-may-hoped-wed-busy-summer-holidays-notice-new-privatisation-row/

Theresa May’s government has been accused of using the summer holidays to sneak out the privatisation of a highly sensitive part of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). 150 enforcement officers. who are responsible for collecting court fines, were told that their jobs could be outsourced.

The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union, meanwhile, has slated the decision. And it has accused the government of “trying to avoid scrutiny” by “sneaking” out the legislation in the summer holiday.
