Fears that the government’s anti-radicalisation strategy, Prevent, is used as a “trawling exercise” will be reinforced by revelations that police forces have been storing personal details of all those referred to the scheme in a database without the knowledge or consent of the individuals involved, the shadow security minister has said.The National Police Prevent Case Management (PCM) database is managed centrally by national counter-terrorism policing headquarters and is compiled by all police forces across the England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, according to documents sent to the human rights group Liberty and seen by the Guardian.The directory includes personal details of the individuals referred to Prevent and the reasons for the referral, and both are added without notifying the person involved.
