CITY WATCH LEICESTER AGAINST CRIME RETENTION OF DOCUMENTS POLICY
• Data Files on ACIS will be removed after 6 months for Juveniles and 12 months for adults to a deleted file. Reinstatement of these files will require written justification.
• Hard copy files will only be kept where absolutely necessary and deleted if no longer required. We intend to create wherever possible a paperless environment. Hard copy files will be kept in a secure location for as long as is necessary for a maximum period  of 6 years after which time they will be destroyed using a cross shredding machine.”
• Data files held on ACIS will be reviewed within one month of the expiry of the notice, warning period or other relevant order and deleted  if there is no justification for its retention.  If there is information or evidence to justify the extension of  the notice, warning or other order, as a result of further offending or activity impacting on the business community including breaches of the exclusion notice, this will be sufficient justification for retention  of the data file  for the period of the extension of such notice, warning or other order.
• Data files deleted from ACIS will be stored in a dormant file on ACIS and reinstatement of any file will require written justification which will be recorded on ACIS.
• ACIS deleted data files stored in this dormant file will be depersonalised after a period of 6 years.
