Custody Images (2468/18)


Under the Freedom of Information Act please answer the following:

1. What practical procedure/s does your force have in place to ensure the review and or deletion of custody images after 6 years?

2. If there is a procedure in place, how many images have been deleted as the result of a periodic review (rather than following an individual’s application for deletion)?

3. How many images on your custody image database are of unconvicted persons?

4. Since February 2017, how much has your force spent on the deletion of custody images of unconvicted people?


Under section 21 of the Act, we are not required to provide information in response to a request if it is already reasonably accessible to you. Please see below:

With our current systems and processes we don’t routinely delete custody images, however we do have an application process which considers the Home Office criteria.  Details including the application form are available on our website as below.
