I WOULD SERIOUSLY ADVISE FELLOW MEMBERS NOT TO SUBMIT CAD REPORTS ONTO THIS WEBSITE.

FIRST OF ALL, IT IS A CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.

SECOND AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL IT IS ILLEGAL!

JUST A REMINDER TO YOU ALL IF YOU DID NOT KNOW

Thirdly violation of DPA and I'm sure professional standards, or whomever, wouldn't be best pleased.

Dear All

Interesting though this item is.It being a good demonstration of a PCSOs worth on the street I believe there are real issues in posting the CAD sheet here.

Such documents are confidential and should only be used for the pupose for which they were provided.

Not only could improper use constitute a breach of the Data Protection Act(a criminal offence) it is almost certainly a breach of employer/employee confidentiality( a breach of contract).

It might be possible to identify third parties from such print outs and as such could contravene Data Protection and possibly (in extreme cases) The Human Rights Act (Right to a private life)

It would not be possible to argue a public interest immunity or to claim that the new Freedom of Information Act justified the publication of this document.

As such this could easily lead to disciplinary action which could well be regarded as a gross misconduct. ie a dismisal offence.

My advice would be to avoid posting any document obtained in the course of duty unless it is "Not Protectivly Marked" or specific permission has been made to make the disclosure.


As ever consult your Trade Union if you need clarification

Its not PNC as PNC does not hold this type of information (People/Property/Drivers/Vehicles). It will more than likely be a reference in a database within the CAD software that is created locally.
