Arrest Record and Disclosure

DNA, Finger Prints and Custody Image removal
This record will be kept on the system unless an application is made to have it removed. Your DNA, fingerprints and custody image will also be held on the police’s computer system.
The police have a discretion to keep this information and may be able to justify its retention on their system.
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificates
Arrest record information can be disclosed on an enhanced DBS certificate which may be a significant problem if you plan to work in a regulated sector such as healthcare or teaching.
