In recognition of the need to implement changes and engage in preparations to achieve compliance by May 2018 CENTRIC has produced a GDPR Guide for the Police and Crime Commissioners’ Chief Executives across the UK. This guide was presented by CENTRIC to the Association of Policing and Crime Chief Executives in October 2017.
The GDPR Guide sets out requirements and highlights key issues in a reader-friendly, accessible way and will be available for wider circulation from the CENTRIC website very soon.
A training session was held by CENTRIC at the joint annual conference for the Association of Policing and Crime Chief Executives and PaCCTS (Police and Crime Commissioner Treasurers). The session presented key points from the Guide and addressed practical implementation issues. CENTRIC are currently preparing updates and supporting documents to continue with this work.
CENTRIC is also currently working on a Policing Guide, which addresses data protection requirements specifically for law enforcement purposes. This will also be available here, on the CENTRIC website in January 2018.
