Letter from the chair of the BFEG, Chris Hughes, to Stephen Webb (Home Office), outlining the BFEG’s response on the Home Office review of the use and retention of custody images.
The letter recommends that:
a public consultation should be conducted, prior to the next scheduled custody images review, to ascertain the views of the public in relation to the retention and use of custody images
future IT systems should allow for the centralised storage and automatic deletion of custody images, and the retention regime governing these IT systems should be agreed prior to the development of new technology
