The National DNA database and its use across the UK

Dna197 Many thanks to the Big Brother Watch supporter who this morning kindly sent us a link to a fascinating section of the National Policing Improvement Agency's website.

On the website, you can find a map of the 43 Police forces across the UK and information about the way in which they use the national DNA database.  The information for each county is broken down by the by gender, current age and visual appearance of individuals included on the database.

You can find the data here.

Do let us know if you find any gems.
