Case retention periods and routine destruction of records:

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998, it is our practice not to retain personal information in cases for longer that we require it for business purposes.

Case retention periods are set out in Chapter 6 of our Records Management Manual.

Please note that we do not retain information about death cases, which have not been the subject of criminal proceedings, for longer than 5 years.
