Safeguards policy

Sixth principle

Personal data must be processed for law enforcement processes in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data using appropriate technical or organisational measures.

Electronic information is processed within our secure network and shared via secure email. Hard copy information is processed within our secure premises and outside our premises (for example, at court) in a secure manner.

Electronic and hard copy information processed for the law enforcement purposes is only available to staff who carry out the processing for these purposes. Our electronic systems and physical storage have appropriate access controls applied.

The systems we use to process personal data for law enforcement purposes allow us to erase or update personal data at any point in time. They also allow us to log the following information:

  • collection
  • alteration
  • access
  • identity of the person who accessed
  • disclosures
  • combination or records
  • erasure
