POLICE CAUTION

Police cautions should not show up on CRB or enhanced CRB checks after a short period of time i.e. 2/3 years.

The current system means they will show up for life.

This is extremely unfair and disappointing.

From personal circumstances, I received a police caution whilst at university for a one off offence that was totally out of character. Fast forward two years and I am having extreme difficulty in pursuing a career as a teacher.

I feel police cautions should not be included in CRB checks and Enhanced CRB checks after a short period of time, unless the crime for which the offence was commited is extremely serious i.e. sex crime. However, in this circumstance a police caution is unlikely to be administered anyway.

Why is this idea important?
