The National DNA Database annual report 2013 to 2014 reviews the work of the last year.
Lord Bates introduces the NDNAD annual report, finding:
- the reduction in profiles held from innocent people has not led to any reduction in the number of matches the database produces
- the NDNAD remains an important tool for the police in solving crime
- we have transformed it from a database that infringed the privacy of innocent citizens to one that is proportionate and still effective
