Our client had been issued a police caution for the possession of cocaine – it had been issued over a decade ago.

The client wanted to move abroad where having a drugs caution would causes significant difficulties in obtaining a Visa. The caution was being indirectly revealed on an ACRO police certificate.

The client had lived for years worrying about the caution, and avoiding applying for regulated jobs for fear of the caution being disclosed.

We reviewed the evidence in her case and advised that she had a case to apply for the deletion of her police caution from the PNC.

Within a relatively short period of time the police agreed to delete the client’s caution form her record.

Now that the caution is deleted her police caution states “no trace” as opposed to “no live trace”.

Records Deletion and Suppression Solicitors

We have extensive experience in applying for the deletion of police cautions in relation to many different police forces.

Along with applying for the deletion of police cautions, we are also able to assist with the deletion of PNC arrest records, community resolutions, harassment PINs, Penalty Notices for Disorder (PNDs) and local police records held on the Police National Database (PND).

Along with applying for the deletion of police records, we can also assist with challenging DBS disclosures on both standard and enhanced DBS certificates. Our lawyers also have extensive experience in challenging DBS barring decisions; both appealing existing barrings, or resisting a new barring application.

We can also assist with applying for the removal of online records, such as unfavourable news articles under the right to be forgotten (the right to erasure).

Also if you, or a loved one, has received a restraining order, we will be able to assist in its removal or amendment.

In most cases we offer fixed fees, unfortunately we do not offer legal aid.
