The Metropolitan Police has previously confirmed in response to question 2014/2364  that "There are approximately 2,511 nominal records currently held within the NDEDIU, which are subject to continuous review with the view to deleting any records which bear no relevance to our policing purposes." Please confirm how a 'nominal record' differs from an 'intelligence record' held by the NDEDIU?

A nominal record holds data that may indicate a person (nominal) is of interest to the NDEDIU for a policing purpose.


An intelligence record may also hold information about for example an event, a threat, an area, interest or an organisation etc.
