The police are responsible for holding a large amount of data about the general public. This can be anything from your last known address, to whether or not you have had any criminal convictions. Most of the time, the police keep hold of this information correctly. However, in some instances, it has been known for the police to use this information incorrectly, whether this be by accident or on purpose.
This could be the police wrongly recording that a person has a criminal conviction and disclosing this to a potential employer, thus causing the person in question to lose the chance of a job. In these cases, it is possible to claim compensation.
If you feel you have been a victim of the wrong use of data by the police, we recommend you take action. Here at DPP, we have years of experience in handling these types of cases.
