Deletion of Police Caution Solicitors

Our client had been arrested after a minor dispute with his wife. An argument had arisen between the client and his wife after an evening out. Soon after calling the police the client’s wife regretted calling them, and asked the officers not to arrest her husband. As the police have a proactive policy with respect to domestic assault cases, they went ahead and arrested our client and detained him at the police station.

The client’s wife refused to provide a statement or cooperate with the investigation, the police however were able to persuade our client to accept the caution. The duty solicitor had also advised the client to accept the caution.

Once we were instructed we were able to persuade the police to entirely delete the client’s caution, arrest record, and biometric data.

The client has been able to continue with his professional career without having to disclose his caution to his employer or his regulator.
