Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today. Why do you think you may have one?
Why do you need to find this out, what would you use the information for?
What level CRB are you having done?
Until you have the check done and see the result there is no official way as such to find out if you have a record and what would come up in it. Saying that, if you have not had to do a DBS check recently (this is the new name for CRB checks) and are unsure what details are still stored on the police database, then you can write to the police force that was responsible for dealing with your criminal record (usually the local one to you) and make a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998. This would involve writing to them, including proof of your ID, and requesting that they release any information held on you on the police database. There may be a small fee involved, so I suggest you contact them first to check exactly what they need before you write to them with your request.
Once they provide the results of what infrmaiotn is held on you, then you would be able to see if you have any formal convictions and when they are from, so you can work out if they would be included on the DBS check.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you need me to clarify anything before you go - please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
Then there would not be a conviction or a caution that would show up on a standard check
If this was18 years ago then it would be long considered spent and not show up n a standard check
you are welcome
Hi there, I cannot say categorically what will show up because the police do make errors and I have seen all sorts of examples when something has been disclosed when it should not have been. So whilst it should not, no guarantee can be given about this as you can hopefully appreciate
