Greater Manchester Police Fined!!
Greater Manchester Police have been fined £150,000 after 3 DVD’s went missing in the post, these contained interviews with victims who had suffered violent or sexual crimes. The Police sent the DVD’s recorded delivery but they never arrived at the Serious Crime Analysis Section of the National Crime Agency.
The DVD’s that were sent by post weren’t encrypted, the DVD’s showed named victims talking openly about their traumatic ordeals. Sadly, this isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last case of sensitive information being lost.
