Police Caution Deleted for Academic

We have again had a caution expunged for a client.

Our client was a professional University academic, the caution was having a serious adverse effect on the client’s professional advancement.

The client was extremely anxious that the caution would end their career, and even though they had fully admitted the allegation, they contacted us to see if we could help.

Police Caution Expungement Solicitors

After we reviewed the case papers we were able to determine that there were some errors with the handling of the case, and we presenting our findings to the police.

I strongly recommend Matthew Elkins for anyone who is considering applying for caution removal. He was sharp like a blade. My caution has now being removed. Many thanks to Matthew for getting my life back

Within a relatively short period of time the police agreed to expunge the client’s caution and PNC record.

Now that the caution is expunged, the client can return to work, safe in the knowledge that they will have a clear Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
