I bought drugs for my use over internet (class C), was given

This answer was rated:

I bought drugs for my use over internet (class C), was given a warning letter from border enforcement who seized the meds and destroyed them.
This morning was interviewed by police, they will not warn or caution me for this but it is a notifiable offence they say so can they inform my employer? I am a nurse thus will lose my job if this happens.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
What would you like to know about this please?

They said it was a notifiable offence, what does this mean? I am a nurse and I gave my employers name is ***** ***** they will inform my employers resulting in loss of career due to this?
Sorry for the delay. I lost my connection.
Yes, this is a notifiable offence but that just means that it is statutorily notifiable to the Home Office.
What the police mean is that, in the course of any application for a DBS check, this would show upon your records. Unfortunately you will be fairly regularly checked and this is plainly relevant.
You will almost certainly also be under a duty to notify your employers of any relevant circumstance.
However, if the police have decided not to prosecute or caution you then there is no offence and nothing can be disclosed. I suppose there is a chance that the information could be upon your enhanced record under information only but since it didn't lead to any action it is difficult to see on what basis they could notify.
Can I clarify anything for you?
