Thank you for your response to my question 2017/3975. Has there ever been a policy change regarding the retention period for footage and images recorded by the National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter cameras for the Metropolitan Police Service in London? If so, please provide a) the details of when this happened, b) the change in policy, and c) what has been done with any footage and images retained under any previous policy.

We have now received further clarification from the NPAS. To correct our previous answer to Q2017/3975, NPAS has not yet implemented its retention policy: this is likely to be introduced in late January 2018 and will be set at 90 days for all non-evidential images.
