Safer Streets

Who do you keep information about?

We keep information about residents in certain areas who have been burgled.

Why do you keep information about me?

We keep the information in order to install security measures at people’s properties to reduce the likelihood of them being burgled in the future and to refer them to the Fire and Rescue Service for a Safe and Wellbeing Visit.

In relation to the installation of security measures the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.  The legislation that underpins this processing is the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

In relation to referring people to the Fire and Rescue Service for a Safe and Wellbeing Visit the processing of personal data is based on consent.

Who can see my information?

Community Safety and Building Services staff can see your personal data in order to provide you with support.  We will share your information with the Fire and Rescue Service where you have consented to us doing so for the purpose of arranging a Safe and Wellbeing Visit.

How do you store the information you keep about me?

We will keep your personal data securely in Building Services database (Open Contractor) and on the Council’s network.  We will make referrals to the Fire and Rescue Service via secure email.

How long do you keep information about me?

We will keep your information for three years. This information is destroyed securely when we no longer need it.

How did the Council get my personal data?

We received your personal information from the Police.

In cases where your personal data was obtained from a source other than yourself or your representative, we will inform you of the origin of the information within 1 month, unless that information is being used to contact you, in which case, that information should be provided to you at the latest, upon first communication with you.  However, it is not necessary to provide that information in cases where you already possess the information, where recording or disclosure is expressly laid down in law or where provision of the information proves impossible or would involve disproportionate effort. 

What sort of information do you keep?

We may use the following information about you to make sure that we provide you with the right service, advice or support.  We will only use the minimum amount of information necessary to do so and will take every reasonable step to ensure the information is accurate.
