Keeping the right people on the DNA database

This consultation intends to promote public debate on how long we should retain fingerprints and DNA. 

The paper sets out the benefits of DNA and fingerprints in detecting offenders and helping to bring them to justice. It also sets out proposals to introduce clearer and more transparent safeguards for the individual. It aims to provide a proportionate balance between protecting communities and protecting the rights of the individual.
