Kingdom Services Group "Non Encrypted Body Worn Cameras"

We're waiting for M Mounty to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Northampton Borough Council,

I recently observed enforcement officers working for Kingdom Services Group Limited using PR5 Body Worn Cameras (not encrypted). To that end, could you answer the following questions.

1. Could you confirm that the Enforcement Officers employed by Kingdom Services Group Limited, who are working on behalf of your council as authorised officers are no longer using Pinnacle PR5 Body Worn Cameras, which are not encrypted to protect the Personal Identifiable Information obtained from members of the public during the issuance of a Fixed Penalty Notice?

2. Could you confirm the number of Fixed Penalty Notices issued by Kingdom Services Group Limited using a PR5 Body Worn Cameras since 25th May 2018?

3. could you break the answer from question 2 down into paid, cancelled, written off and unpaid FPNs?

4. Although, all devices which are being used to record personal identifiable information should be encrypted as per GDPR 2016. If Kingdom Services Group are refusing to upgrade their body-worn cameras to the encrypted model, could you send me a copy of the Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) which clearly shows the risks of having an un-encrypted body worn camera and the measures in place to protect the personal identifiable information of the general public who come into contact with the council's authorised officers working on behalf of Kingdom Services Group Limited?

5. Did you know that the files on a PR5 camera can be accessed from any computer?

6. Did you know that Kingdom officers take these cameras home at the end of each shift, therefore data can be removed and manipulated?

7. Did you know Kingdom have had three separate data breaches in the past 3 months with regards to the loss of PR5 cameras?

8. Did you know that you (the council) are joint controllers under GDPR 2016 and the council would also incur a large fine if a breach is proven?

9. This is the link to a data breach involving Kingdom at Anglesey Council and the council was deemed to be the data controller by ICO even though Kingdom lost the notebook.

If my questions above are not answered fully or the fact Kingdom's officers have issued Fixed Penalty Notices since 25th May 2018 using PR5 cameras is denied. I will submit all of my evidence to the press, Information Commissioners Office and Ombudsman.

Yours faithfully,

M Mounty
