Data protection

UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act 2018
The UK GDPR is a legal framework that sets out guidelines for the collection, use and sharing of personal information of people within the UK. It originally came into effect as a piece of EU legislation (the 'EU-GDPR') on 25th May 2018. The GDPR was retained in domestic law as the UK GDPR after the UK left the European Union, but the UK has the independence to keep the framework under review. 

The Data Protection Act 2018 received Royal Assent on 24 May 2018. This Act updates data protection laws in the UK, and sits alongside the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR). The Act implements the EU Law Enforcement Directive, as well as extending domestic data protection laws to areas which are not covered by the UK GDPR.

Our commitment to Data Protection
Keeping your personal information safe and secure remains our top priority and we are working to update our policies and procedures to ensure that we comply with Data Protection legislation.

To promote transparency in the way we process personal data, we are developing privacy notices for each area of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s work to offer more detail on what personal data we collect, how we use it and your rights.

We are publishing our policies and procedures on this page as they become available.
