2. If the foreign national’s country is not on the mandatory notification list than:

Offer, without delay, to notify the foreign national’s consular officials of the arrest / detention; and,

If the foreign national asks that consular notification be given, notify the nearest consular officials of the foreign national’s country without delay.

3. If the foreign national’s country is on the list of mandatory notification countries than:

Notify that country’s nearest consular officials, without delay, of the arrest / detention; and,

Tell the foreign national that you are making this notification; and,

4. Keep a written record of the provision of notification and actions taken.
