Fury at cops' use of data about kids; CRIMINALS.
ContactPoint, a pounds 224million computer system, was devised after the death of Victoria Climbie when authorities failed to protect her.
It will include details of all 11 million under-18s and was intended to provide greater care for children - but it can also be used to search for evidence of criminality.
Baroness Miller, Lib Dem spokeswoman in the Lords, angrily said: "This is truly the definition of a police state."
A Government spokesman said: "The purpose of Contact-Point is not crime detection ...police would have to make a special request directly to the secretary of state."
