This separate publication of the Digital Imaging Proceedure has been produced in response to the demand from the police service for a working version of the procedures with minimal extra information. The data has been extracted from v1.0 of the Digital Imaging in the CJS CD to ease distribution and access. While there are no material changes to the procedures the opportunity has been taken to make some editorial changes and information updates.

It is suggested that these procedures and guidelines are incorporated within force procedures, taking account of any application-specific requirements. Where detailed information is required reference should be made to relevant legislation, Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines and/or individual force procedures.

There are several issues which are not highlighted from the procedure. These are introduced and discussed briefly here to answer frequently asked questions about digital imaging.
