Can you claim for a police data breach?

You are entitled to bring a claim for a police data breach. Just because it’s the police doesn’t mean you are not entitled to compensation.

The police have the same duties as anyone else in terms of rights to make a claim for compensation. In the hands of the police, your data is still subject to the same laws and safeguards.

What do you claim for?

In a police data breach claim you typically claim for any distress caused. You could also claim for financial losses if they have taken place as well.

The distress element is important here. The police have a lot of very personal and incredibly sensitive data in their possession. If your personal and sensitive data has been misused or leaked, you’re entitled to claim compensation for any distress caused.
