Records Management Policy and Retention and Disposal Schedule

The Retention and Disposal Schedule (the Schedule) is a tool used to ensure the effective management of business information and identifies the retention periods set for specific and general categories of records and the action which should be taken when records are of no further administrative use.  

It takes into account the context in which the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) operates, including the legal and regulatory environment.  It also ensures compliance with Section 46 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA), which requires a public authority to manage records in line with guidance issued by the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
