    hand over

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether it is possible to say:

    "hand over the person to the police"?

    Or is there a better expression?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, you can say that. 'hand over' is a phrasal verb
    hand over, a. to deliver into the custody of another. dictionary.com
    Another word you can use is 'consign'.
