Police Caution Removed for Teacher

Our client, a teacher, had received a caution in relation to a domestic common assault allegation. The client had been wrongfully issued the police caution in relation to a malicious allegation made by an ex-partner.

After reviewing the case we were able to clearly determine that there had been some serious defects in the cautioning procedure. After making representations to the police we were able to have the cautioned expunged (removed) from the record.

Enhanced DBS Certificates and Teaching

Had the caution remained on the client’s PNC record the caution would have definitely appeared on the client’s Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Certificate for the next 6 years and may have shown up on an enhanced DBS (Previously CRB) check indefinitely.

Police Caution & Arrest Record Removal

We have had many cautions and arrest records deleted for clients in a multitude of different scenarios and in respect of police forces accross England and Wales.

A police caution can have a serious impact on a professional career or on immigration, if you or a loved one has received a police caution, then please get in touch.

For arrest record and police caution removals we are usually able to offer a fixed fee.

DBS Barred List and Enhanced & Standard DBS Certificate Appeals

We are also often instructed to appeal information disclosed on DBS certificates and challenge unfair decisions to place people on the DBS children or adults barred list. With DBS certificate appeals and Barred List appeals we usually charge a reasonable hourly rate.
