Hi

Thank you.

There are four potential options.

  1. Instruct a solicitor to enquire on your behalf. They may charge for that but usually the police will tell them if there is a warrant

 

  1. Call yourself and ask but the answer may well be that they won’t tell you unless you surrender in person and prove your identity.

  1. Surrender in person and ask. The risk of that is that they will just arrest you if there is a warrant.

 

  1. Make a freedom of information request for any information upon you but that can take 40 days.

Can I clarify anything for you?
