Unfortunately, for the purposes of certain occupations, those occupations are exempt under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. The police is one, prison service is another, legal profession, finance, banking, working with children, the medical profession to name just a few. Hence, even spent convictions have to be disclosed.
However a caution is not a conviction although it is likely that the question which was actually asked directly whereas “do you have any cautions or convictions even those which have been spent”. To answer that no, be viewed as being dishonest.
Unfortunately with the question, because you can either accept it or decline it, once it is on the record, it is not possible to get it expunged. It will not show up on a basic check up on an enhanced check under the section entitled “any other relevant information”.
With regard to the water bomb incident, I’m not certain what the point you are making is here. It seems to be a separate incident are together with no caution received.
I see that you have asked for a live telephone call. I am happy to call you but there is an extra charge for it so I will submit a premium service proposal for you now.
Can I clarify anything for you?
