The following categories of information are held on Police National Computer (PNC):
Vehicles—Both DVLA information and those suspected of being involved in crime.
Property—Certain specific categories of identifiable property such as plant, marine craft, firearms.
Persons—Any person who has been arrested for a recordable offence, convicted, reprimanded, or cautioned for a recordable offence, or is wanted or sought by the police.
The police have access to PNC data and limited access to certain data items is available to certain agencies who have a ‘policing’ responsibility. Any non police agency who has access to PNC data has had to apply for the access through an Association of Chief Police Officers group, which applies the guidelines agreed with the Information Commissioner.
