On 25th May 2018, the UK produced its new data protection legislation, on the same day the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force.
These rules set the standard for how organisations should be use, hold and share your personal information and will strengthen data protection for all individuals within the European Union.
Any organisations processing personal information must comply with the principles of data protection law.

- Held securely and treated with the highest confidentiality.
- Collected and used for a specific, explicit and legitimate purpose.
- Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the specified purpose.
- Kept up-to-date and accurate and stored for no longer than is neccesary.
The Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner takes your privacy very seriously and is committed to protecting your personal information. This page will give you more details about how we use, hold and share your information, how you can make an information rights request and how to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner.
