does this apply even though he was not charged or convicted of any offence and the person that made the allegation against him subsequentlt admitted dshe made it up
thank you for your answwr, it would seem on the face of it though that this would now be a permanent bar on my son joining the police service due to something he did not do.
Would it be best for him to get this matter dealt with through a solicitor to get information added or attempt to get the records removed or a direct letter to the chief constable from himself.
I would also have thought that this would have breached some form of human rights legislation that someone has made up an allegation against him of a sexual nature and it is now going to have a long term effect on his chosen career through no fault or actions of his own
thanks for the reply, but I do not think suing her for defamation would help my son in his career choice.
I think the sensible option would be to get a solicitor to deal with it for now to ensure the record is correct on the police dtatbse and show that the allegation was made up, and then make moves to get it completely removed legally. I would assume though that this would be a costly exercise and would require a specalist solicitor to deal with.
