Alex Hughes :

Police Information Notices (PINs), also called called Harassment Warning Notices, are issued by the police where there isallegations of harassment but is not any kind of formal legal action. They are not formal police cautions, charge or bail conditions - the notice is a written notice to stop harassing you. But becaude it is not formal action the police cannot stop your husband returning to your address if that is what you want. BUT if there is a problem in the future then the police may take action against him for harassment and rely on the fact that the notice has been issued.


Because acknowledging receipt of a Police Information Notice does not mean that the recipient is admitting any wrongdoing, there is no right of appeal. If a person is unhappy about the fact that the warning was issued, he or she could complain to the police force or to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. Specific legal advice from a suitably qualified professional would be necessary if a recipient wished to check the implications of the PIN for future action they might wish to take.


 


The Government is working with the Association of Chief Police Officers to review guidance for the police on the issuing of PINs as part of updating wider stalking and harassment guidance

Remember that the notice was issued to your husbanf, so you have no right to complain. If he wishes he can complain in the manner I have outlined. Otherwise, because he is not on bail and there is no restraining order, there is nothing stopping him from returning to the home if that's what you both want. Please remember to take a moment to rate my answer. All the best.
