178.Subsection (3) of section 88 defines “local police area”. Subsection 3(b) and (c) deal with cases where the offender has no home address (as defined in subsection (7) of section 83). He may have no home address because for example he spends most of his time abroad and only returns to the UK occasionally, or because he is itinerant.
