Police Caution Removed in Alleged Domestic Assault Case

We have recently had a police caution removed in the context of a domestic dispute.

The client, a teacher, was arrested and cautioned in relation to a domestic argument. The police were called and came to the home address.

The client’s wife told the police that she did not want the client arrested nor any action to be taken.

Despite this the client was arrested and taken to the police station.

After interview the client accepted the police caution.

Only after leaving the police station did the client realise the significant and long term impact of the police caution on his future professional career.

The client instructed us to apply for the removal of his police caution

After reviewing the file we were able to determine that there had been some significant procedural errors in the issuing of the caution. Due to these errors we were able to have the caution removed, arrest record deleted and DNA and fingerprints expunged from the police national computer (PNC)

Your persistence really made the difference. Now that my caution is removed I don’t feel like a criminal anymore

Police Caution Removal, DBS certificates and Barring list appeals

Please get in touch if you feel you have been issued with an unfair police caution. We have had success with a significant number of cases. We have successfully removed police cautions were previous solicitors have failed and also where lawyers were present during the initial issuing of the police caution.

We are also able to assist with appealing DBS disclosure certificates and appeals against being placed on the barred list.

We offer reasonable fixed fees (unfortunately we are unable to offer our services under legal aid).
