Ireland enters Europe-wide deal to share facial data of suspected criminals
Ireland has agreed to share facial imagery of suspects and convicted criminals with other European countries as part of an expanded crime-fighting data-sharing system.
The Oireachtas passed an update to the existing EU Prum system which will also enable Ireland to share police records with other EU law enforcement agencies.
The original Prum system allowed member states to share DNA, fingerprint, and vehicle registration data as part of investigations into specific crimes.
