I was cautioned in 2008 by the thames valley police after i defended myself from ex-abusive boyfriend by biting him. i never reported the abuses which he inflicted on me during relationship. will such caution be disclosed on a  enchanced DBS check?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Is this the only conviction you have? What type of dbs check are you having?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


Enchanced DBS

Was it for an assault?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


Ok. Then it won't show on a DBS check as a caution. There is a box for the police to put additional information where the application is for working with vulnerable adults, they can out extra info here.
But given this was domestic related it is unlikely they would put anything here. So your caution won't show.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

do i need to disclosed to an employer

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

what about employment exempt from provisions of section 4 (2) of the rehabilitation of offenders Act 1974?

Unless it's an exempted post then you won't need to declare it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i am a bit confused with your last answer, can u please further? i will need to disclose this caution for exempt post?

You also need to check the wording if it is exempted. If it asks have you ever been convicted then the answer is still no. A caution is not a conviction.
Does that help?
