Answer for Domestic Extremism Database

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The number of intelligence records is not published for security and public interest reasons.

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.

The number of intelligence records fluctuates. To provide the context alongside this data is likely to reveal operational tactics and may put operations or the public at risk. The data already provided by the NDEDIU in answer to MQ 2750 / 2014 is more meaningful.
