"The Police National Database (PND) will go live next week. When it does, the details of some 10-15 million people will be conveniently stored in one place, available to over 12,000 police personnel. Jennie Cronin, director at the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA), says of the new database, 'To share intelligence carries some risks, but choosing not to share poses a far greater risk to public protection.' This statement merits some examination." (06/21/11)
