In these cases, I always do the GURPS thing: the Advantage represents reality, not official theoretical technicalities. These come to be important only if they are important in the plot (the bad guy being released because a Dorset policeman arrested him in London, and the paperwork was not done properly, and maybe the bad guy has a friend high up); but even in that case, that's going to be the interesting exception, not how the Advantage normally works.
