Data Protection

The Office of the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner (OSPCC) is committed to protecting your personal information in a responsible manner.

The OSPCC is bound by the Data Protection Act and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which puts a greater weight of responsibility on individuals and organisations whose work involves the collection of personal data, and requires those businesses and organisations to give individuals greater visibility into, and control over, the data they provide to those businesses and organisations.

In many cases, it is the Chief Constable of Sussex Police and not the Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) who holds personal information. This is particularly relevant in respect of the information held about prosecutions, convictions and cautions. Any questions about the information held by the Sussex Police should be directed to the Force. Further information is available on the Sussex Police website.

The Data Protection Officer for the OSPCC can be contacted by email to:
