Management of police information

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the Law Enforcement Directive (LED) takes effect from 25th May 2018. Work is currently being carried out to ensure that these regulations are reflected here. In the meantime, further information can be found here.

The principles of management of police information (MoPI) provide a way of balancing proportionality and necessity that are at the heart of effective police information management. They also highlight the issues that need to be considered in order to comply with the law and manage risk associated with police information.

This section of APP (management of police information) is the detailed guidance referred to in Home Office (2005) Code of Practice on Management of Police Information. It supersedes ACPO (2010) Guidance on Management of Police Information.
