Abstract

This article considers the current approach to the retention of DNA and fingerprint data taken from non-convicted persons in England and Wales. Concerns are raised about the precautionary rather than proportionate approach of domestic legislators in the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 provisions, and the continued unjustifiable interference this causes to the rights of such persons under article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).
