The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has been given an official reprimand by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for infringements of Section 38(4) of Part 3 of the Data Protection Act 2018.
Following an investigation, the ICO found the MPS was unable to ensure sensitive criminal intelligence files relating to Organised Crime Groups (OCG) were being entered, amended, or deleted from the Police National Database (PND) as they should have been between April-July 2020. Furthermore, the MPS was unaware of the failure, meaning its consequences cannot be measured.
