The processing of data for law enforcement purposes is covered in Part 3 of the DPA 2018 and can only be done by an organisation which is considered as a competent authority. Law enforcement purposes are defined as the prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of criminal offences or the execution of criminal penalties, including the safeguarding against and the prevention of threats to public security. The description of a competent authority is laid down in the Data Protection Act 2018, it includes but is not limited to, organisations such as Police Forces, the Financial Conduct Authority and the Information Commissioner.
