Police Cautions Must Be Removed

Dear All I was given a police caution for a very minor event which I cannot go into details for legal reasons. This has dramatically changed my life because although I have numerous degrees behind me it was all for nothing because it seems as if no one is interested in employing me. I am currently being treated by psychologists for depression and trauma.
However, there are many of us who were given or accepted a police caution for numerous reasons. This includes signing the form under pressure by a police officer, being given the wrong information such as the caution would be removed within a period of time (mainly 5years), or for fear of being kept in a cell for over a night. Whatever the reason may be, I am of the opinion that those who have received a police caution particular for minor offences should not be punished for the rest of their life. Though the police have the power to caution individuals, they are not judges and it is not certain that if you have gone ahead with court proceedings you would be convicted. I am sure that many of us now wished that we went ahead with court proceedings because in my case I was advised that CPS would not accept my case but now is too late. A CAUTION IS AS GOOD AS A CONVICTION. My only problem is I cannot live under this oppression of being labelled a criminal by employers and other members
of the public. I much prefer to get a prison life sentence than to live in this society being turned down jobs after jobs and having only one option of depending in benefits. As you may be aware the Protection of Freedoms Bill 2011-2012 maintains that adults with cautions will have their records kept indefinitely which is disproportionate. Therefore, I am asking those who have not got a chance to come before a judge to sign a caution Epetition at HM Government. Website is: Epetitions.direct.uk/petitions. 100.000 signatures are required for the government to consider the discussion in the parliament. Let us do something or lets us live in rejection, discrimination, and in misery for the rest of our lives for a minor mistake or choice that we have taken. Thanks

Why is this idea important?

All Cautions over five years old be completely delted

I would like to see an end to the law which dictates, that if you accept and receive a Police Caution it is enforced to remain on your record for life. Under current police policy, criminal records including cautions, can remain on the police national computer for up to 100 years. I propose that all Cautions over five years old be completely delted including all kept finger prints and DNA records.

ALL POLICE CAUTIONS SHOULD BE SCRAPPED

THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ISSUED FORMAL POLICE CAUTIONS SHOULD HAVE THE CAUTION OVERTURNED, ALL THEIR PERSONAL DETAILS, DNA, PHOTOS, FINGERPRINTS AND ALL OTHER DATA TAKEN BY POLICE AND OTHER AGENCIES (CRB, HOME OFFICE, ETC) SHOULD BE DESTROYED, DELETED, ERASED. THE STATUS OF PEOPLE WITH FORMAL POLICE CAUTIONS SHOULD GO BACK TO THE STATUS AS THOSE INNOCENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER EVER BEEN ARRESTED OR IN TROUBLE WITH THE POLICE. THE STATUS OF PEOPLE WITH FORMAL POLICE CAUTIONS SHOULD GO BACK TO THE STATUS THAT MANY OF US PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN IN TROUBLE OR EVEN ARRESTED BY THE POLICE ENJOY.

STOP POLICE CAUTIONS

 

Cautions  should be removed. Innocent people are accepting Cautions not realising that their lives are then blighted because they get a police record. Remove this offence and return to the time before this offence existed. Let people be judged by a magistrate or a court of their peers.Cautions allow people to self incriminate themselves. People have been tricked into accepting Cautions as this is an arrangement agreed between a person and the police. As the Government is talking of removing the target led environment in the Police ,the use of Cautions by the Police should be removed.
