The Information Commissioner’s Office has ordered the Lancashire Police Authority to tighten procedures when publishing information on its website.

The privacy watchdog said that the Authority had breached the Data Protection Act when it published details of an individual’s complaint online even though it was marked as restricted. The Authority also failed to remove the details immediately once the complainant had brought the breach to its attention.

An order by the ICO to the Lancashire Police Authority means it must now ensure information is checked and made ready before being released on the website.
