Another Police Caution Removed for Client

We have again had a police caution removed for a client, a professionally qualified lawyer (solicitor).

The client had been unfairly issued a police caution and asked us to apply to the police to remove the caution.

Unfairly issued Police Cautions

After making representations to the police they agreed that the police caution had been improperly issued and agreed to expunge the caution from the police national computer (PNC).

DBS Disclosure Certificates and Unfair Police Cautions

The client will now have a clear DBS certificate and no longer needs to disclose the caution on job application forms.

If you have received an unfairly issued police caution then please get in touch.

We have had many police cautions removed for clients successfully which has meant they have been able to continue to work in their chosen professions.

I am a qualified solicitor and I have extensive experience of applying for the removal of police cautions from the PNC, challenging DBS certificates and DBS barring decisions. I have had numerous successful cases, and for cases where judicial review proceedings have been issued, I am usually able to recoup my clients’ costs from the police. I have co-authored a journal paper on the reform of the police cautioning procedure in the Criminal Law Review (the leading criminal law journal : “Suggestions for Reform to the Simple Cautioning procedure”). I also write the UK Westlaw Insight on Police Cautions and published an article in the Criminal Law and Justice Weekly on anonymity in criminal proceedings and its impact on the police caution: Adult Defendant Anonymity in Criminal Proceedings
