We have successfully argued for the removal of client’s police caution from the PNC.
Our client had received a caution over 15 years ago for affray. Affray is permanently disclosable as it is on a list of offences that will never be removed from a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Due to the caution, the client was having serious difficulties in securing teaching roles.
The client had previously instructed a different solicitor to delete the caution, without success.
After reviewing the evidence, we were able to identify some defects in the case. This meant that it was likely that the caution had been improperly administered.
Even though the case was old, there was still some evidence for us to use that supported the client’s case.
After claiming his innocence for 15 years, the police finally agreed to delete his caution.
The client’s police caution and PNC record were completely expunged.
Now that the record has been removed, the client has been able to obtain a clear enhanced DBS certificate.
If a police caution, community resolution, arrest record, or PND is causing you problems, then please get in touch.
If you are experiencing difficulties due to an Enhanced DBS certificate, we can help.
Sometimes the DBS disclose information about arrests or non-conviction records on enhanced DBS checks. If this is happening to you, then please get in touch.
If you have been asked to obtain a police certificate for foreign travel or immigration, we can help you clear your caution, or “no live trace” record.
We also have extensive experience in challenging DBS barring applications or appealing existing DBS barring decisions.
