Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi Jo, I've been offered a job at a local school, and am filling in the "Protection of Children and Young People" declaration form for the council. One question asks if I've been cautioned by the police or bound over to keep the peace. A couple of years ago, whilst driving, I accidentally went through a red light and was stopped by a passing police control car. The policeman gave me either a "warning" or a "Caution", and I can't remember which! Then he let me go on etc, with nothing else being done (because I admitted my mistake in full).
Now I'm wondering if I have to tick the box saying I've had a Caution and go in to all the details blah blah blah, even though nothing whatsoever to do with Children. It doesn't help not being able to remember the form of words he used. Any tips gratefully accepted.
Hi Ben...Many thanks. As you say, no one's perfect, and it was a complete one-off. I will declare it.
