We have successfully had our client’s PNC record deleted. Our client had been wrongfully accused of a minor criminal allegation.
After making successful representations to the police, the case was dropped.
As the client worked in a regulated profession, he was concerned about his PNC arrest record showing up on an enhanced DBS check.
The police initially refused to remove the PNC record, however after an additional application, the police agreed to delete the PNC record.
