Data Protection

The work to combat crime and disorder involves the sharing of relevant personal details between agencies. Incidents of anti-social behaviour and personal details of people involved in them will be recorded and stored on a database, and may be passed to other authorities.

The storage and sharing of such data will be in accordance with data protection and freedom of information legislation.
