CRO-criminal conviction check
this details the process
I didint see the summons, as I was moving house a lot then and think it got sent to a previous address. I have in fornt of me the DVLA untaxed vehicle warning saying ti was seen being driven out of tax in JUne 2012 (tax expired end of March). I then moved to a flat and when there in January 2013 got a letter from the enforcement services saying they had a distress warrant for non payment of magistrates fine and were instructed to collect. I paid this then over the phone. I do not know what happened about the court summons
I think it was when I got the letter from the enforcement agency in Jan 2013. Although I do recall taxing my car in the summer 2012, having had it clamped and thought that was the end of it. To be honest, at the time I paid it- the debt to the enforcement agency in Jan 2013 and didn't think much more of it as I had so much going on in my life at the time. But now I'm thinking of going for a job in a Category B prison so wnat to knwo if it will show up in the secuirty check and whether it would stop me getting cleared. I'm also curious to know how I can find out if it appears on a criminal record for me
thanks for the repsonse. I am not looking to contest it, just to know really if it is recorded and if it would show up on the DBS check that the prison will do. I am not clear on this answer though. Whilst witing I have been looking at other stuff online and have seen about the SARS so might look into this. Does the PNC record only criminal convictions or does it gold information on magistrates issues?
other than doing the SAR is there anything else I can do to check this out? I am likely to be asked on a prison vetting forms if I have any convictions/court summons and to give dates. Can I get this information from the magistrate court itself? As it is I do not know the court date or details. I have been told that if I fail to declare information and they find it through the DBS search then clearance will be refused.
