Information management

The principles of management of police information (MoPI) provide a way of balancing proportionality and necessity that are at the heart of effective police information management. They also highlight the issues that need to be considered in order to comply with the law and manage risk associated with police information.

This section of authorised professional practice (APP) – management of police information – is the detailed guidance referred to in Home Office (2005) Code of Practice on Management of Police Information. It supersedes Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) (2010) Guidance on Management of Police Information.
