UK police to perform 300,000 DNA tests a year?

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK police force could soon be carrying out some 300,000 DNA tests a year, if draft legislation is approved. The Criminal Justice Bill, currently going through Parliament, would allow the police to test and store DNA on every person arrested, whether or not they are charged, in the same way that finger-printing is now routine. Current legislation only allows DNA testing and profiling to be performed on persons suspected of being involved in specific crimes.
