The cation was for common assault. T
The caution was for common assault. A kid had his arm inside the postbox so i stopped him from stealing. The area I live in had many problems with anti social behaviour. I had my car vandalised alot, I received verbal abuse all the time and I was beaten by a agng of kids in my front garden because I went out of my house as they kept thumping my windows. The abuse went on for years and the police just said there was nkthing they could do.
But I don't understand as the letter I have just received from the wiltshire police force disclosure unt states that if there is a conviction, which includes cautions on the PNC, the information will appear on both a standard and an enhanced crb certificate.
I have also read that for some types of jobs I need to declare a spent caution. For example nationa
But if I try and get a job where I need security checks then this information will be show.
I just dont understand why thr force disclosure unit have still mentioned standard and enhanced crb checks if they no longer exist.
Should I ask them about this
So I can now apply for any job and the police will not be allowed to provide information on the caution.
Also if I wanted to get a visa to goto America I no longer need to declare the caution.
From what I read it seemed a very grey area. But thank you for your help. I will try and get on with my life now and will try not to worry about this anymore.
Sorry to say but I have found out that because I received a caution for common assault on a child they will never remove it from the dbs list, even though I have letter from a chief constable telling me it would be reviewed and potentially destroyed after 10 years, its simply not true. Its been 11 years and the police will not remove the caution from their list. I dont sleep anymore with worry over this as it will stop me from getting a job. All I was trying to was stop a kid from vandalising and stealing from a postbox. Its completely my fault and my life now is effectively over.
