Annual Report and Accounts 2021-2022
The Scottish Biometrics Commissioner has today (25 October 2022) laid his first annual report and accounts before the Scottish Parliament.
The report provides information on the Commissioner’s functions in providing independent oversight of how biometric data and technologies are used for policing and criminal justice purposes in Scotland, and information on our performance and finances. A separate report from the external auditor of our financial statements will be published on the Audit Scotland website: https://www.audit-scotland.gov.uk/
The Commissioner Dr Brian Plastow has today said “My overall strategic conclusion from our activity in 2021 to 2022 is that the Parliament should have confidence in the ways in which biometric data and technologies are currently used for policing and criminal justice purposes in Scotland.”
