Screamed in Despair when this bit was broadcast
Evan Davis: For a year or so you have been introducing the unconvicted into the database as I understand it and using facial recognition software knowing that a court has asked you not to do that
Chief Constable Mike Barton: Well no! I am unashamed about keeping unconvicted photographs in this because we need them for different purposes than DNA and fingerprints and they are not covered by the same legislation.
Essentially that amounted to a Chief Constable saying "Judges? Pah! I don't care what they order!"
There should be alarm bells ringing on so many levels!
