Data Protection Procedure

Posted on

North Yorkshire Police (NYP) and the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire (OPCC) are committed to ensuring that staff undertake their legitimate duties in a manner that is compatible with the data protection principles.

NYP and the OPCC recognise the sensitivity of processed personal information and its obligations in respect of data held by NYP/the OPCC i.e. to protect individuals from harm caused by the use of inaccurate information or the misuse of correct information.

NYP and the OPCC also acknowledge the clear benefits of having accurate and up-to-date information available for use in an appropriate format, when and where it is required. A pragmatic approach to the application of the principles within the Data Protection Act 1998 will help to deliver these benefits.
