The IMU is divided into three multi-faceted teams:

Regional RRD & Data Quality

  • Disclosure & Barring Service

  • Records Management
  • Partner Agency Disclosure
  • Common Law Police Disclosure
  • Information Sharing
  • Staff Vetting

The work of the unit is vital as so much is dependent on accurate and useable information being available to officers and staff.  This can in turn help raise confidence in our communities.

The main objectives of the department are:

  • Protect the force's assets through appropriate security measures
  • Facilitate the appropriate and lawful sharing of information to protect children and vulnerable adults
  • Manage the force's information to ensure compliance with nationally agreed standards
  • Ensure the information we hold as a force is of the highest quality
  • To provide an effective and efficient vetting service to ensure the correct level of access to our premises and our systems
