Details

This part of the bill regulates law enforcement data processing.

The Bill will:

  • Update our data protection laws governing the processing of personal data by the police, prosecutors and other criminal justice agencies.
  • Strengthen the rights of data subjects, whilst ensuring that criminal justice agencies can continue to use and share data to investigate crime, bring offenders to justice and keep communities safe.
  • Ensure that, following the UK’s exit from the European Union, our criminal justice agencies can continue to share data with other EU Member States and remain at the forefront of the international effort to tackle serious crime and other threats to our security.
