Dear Ms Dickins

Please provide any recorded details of any policies and procedures
relating to the retention of information of those who may pose a risk to
children from 2006 onwards. This includes Identified offenders, those that
may pose a risk to children and allegations.

 

I am specifically looking for information relating to how this data is

London Borough of Barking and Dagenham do not hold specific policies and
procedures in regards to the retention of information who may pose a risk
to children from 2006 onwards.

 

The Borough records this information on our Social Care Database as and
when we are made aware of any risks. When an implementation of a new
system is bought in by the borough this information is migrated from its
current system onto the new system.

 

If you need any more information, or if we can be of any further help,
please contact us.

 

If you are not satisfied with the way your request has been dealt with,
you can request a review within 40 days of our response to you,  by
