On 21 January, a blog post from Corker Bining comes in the wake of the news that a large volume of records were deleted from the UK Police National Computer (PNC) in error. The post explains the role, size etc of the PNC, saying that it is an information-sharing system, which allows the sharing of intelligence and information amongst a number of law enforcement agencies. The PNC also provides support to other organisations such as regulatory bodies, government agencies and foreign embassies in the UK. It holds information including the name of a person, their date of birth as well as the gender and ethnicity. It maintains records relating to arrest, summons and details of cautions and convictions.
