Big Brother Watch Team / April 9, 2024

Police Scotland are indefinitely holding more than 3 million photographs, including images of innocent people, in crime databases. Mark Johnson of Big Brother Watch said: “The figures set out in the report are extremely concerning. Police Scotland should automatically delete the custody images of innocent people – not hoard them in a vast index and wait until someone asks for them to be removed.”
