We have statutory functions for law enforcement purposes. These purposes are for the prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences or the execution of criminal penalties.
General areas of law enforcement are listed in Appendix A.
Most of our processing of personal data is, however, for purposes other than law enforcement e.g. libraries, waste disposal and strategic planning. This general processing is not for the primary purpose of law enforcement and is covered by the UK General Data Protection Regulation and Part 2, Chapter 2 Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018).
See our privacy notices and appropriate policy document for more information about this processing.
