Taking part

If you had contact with undercover officers or would like to discuss providing evidence to the Inquiry, you can get in touch with the Inquiry in confidence by:

  • Emailing us at info@ucpi.org.uk
  • Writing to us at PO Box 71230, London NW1W 7QH
  • Giving us a call on 0203 876 4750 or 0203 876 4760.

It is not necessary to be a core participant to receive funding for legal costs or give evidence to the Inquiry. Further information on contacting the Inquiry and becoming a core participant can be found in the FAQs.

Anonymity applications from civilian witnesses

All core participants and witnesses are entitled to request anonymity through a restriction order.

Police

Two undercover policing units – the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) and the National Public Order Intelligence Unit (NPOIU) – have particular prominence for the Inquiry; however, other units across England and Wales also fall within its general remit.

SDS

The SDS was a covert unit that existed within the Metropolitan Police Service between 1968 and 2008.

Cover names

To date, the Inquiry has released the cover names of 68 undercover officers from the SDS. This is to enable members of the public to determine whether they were affected by undercover policing and come forward with evidence.

As with all participants in the Inquiry, officers have the right to request anonymity through a restriction order.

Cover names not subject to a restriction order continue to be published by the Inquiry once pre-publication checks have concluded.

NPOIU

The NPOIU was set up around 1986, originally as the Animal Rights National Index. Around 2010, it merged with two other units to become the National Domestic Extremism Unit.

Four NPOIU officers did not pursue applications to restrict their cover names, and they have already been identified on the Inquiry website: “Mark Stone”/Mark Kennedy, “Lynn Watson”, “Rod Richardson” and “Marco Jacobs”.
