Data Protection Policy

Law Enforcement Requests & Disclosures

In certain circumstances, it is permitted that personal data be shared without the knowledge or consent of the data subject. This is the case where the disclosure of the personal data is necessary for any of the following purposes:

  • The prevention or detection of crime;
  • The apprehension or prosecution of offenders;
  • The assessment or collection of a tax or duty;
  • By the order of a court or by any rule of law.

If Pembrokeshire County Council processes personal data for one of these purposes, then it may apply an exception to the processing rules outlined in this policy (Appendix C) but only to the extent that not doing so would be likely to prejudice the case in question.

If any Pembrokeshire County Council employee receives a request from a court or any regulatory or law enforcement authority for information relating to a Pembrokeshire County Council contact, the Information Governance Team must be notified and will be able to provide guidance and assistance
