|Protection of Freedoms Act – What it Means for Your Organisation|
The Home Office has published details of the implications of the Protection of Freedoms Act. The Act includes provisions around issues such as DNA retention, fingerprinting of children in schools and regulation of CCTV. It also replaces the Vetting and Barring Scheme and creates a new Disclosure and Barring Service to oversee "a scaled-back barring regime focused only on roles working most closely with vulnerable groups".
