Given the link between personal data protection (i.e. privacy related)
and use of spatial information in law enforcement, I thought this
conference might interest some of the list.
_7. Report from the Conference on data protection and law
enforcement (26-27 May, Trier)_
The Conference organised by the European Law Academy (ERA) together with
the EDPS and held within the premises of this academy in Trier on 26 and
27 May was a success.
This conference on data exchange and data protection in the area of
police and justice attracted around 100 participants from a large number
of Member States of the European Union. Specialists on data protection
and on law enforcement discussed the legal framework for data exchange
and data protection, now and in the near future. Many interventions
underlined the importance of bringing together the perspectives of data
protection and law enforcement, both necessary elements of good governance.
