CRB Check - Has anyone had problems with a caution?

    Hello David,

    13 years ago, when I was 17 (nearly 18), I was charged with theft from my employer. The police said they couldn't give me a caution because it was theft from my employer as opposed to just theft.

    I had to go to youth court but wasn't given a custodial sentence or community service. I actually thought the judge gave me a caution as I was let go without punishment and was told by the judge that coming to court was enough punishment for me and not to do it again.

    However, I have done some research on youth sentences and only the police give you cautions so I am a little confused about what sentence I received; maybe it was an absolute discharge? My release wasn't conditional in anything.

    Anyway, I am now applying to work for the NHS and need to know if my conviction will be filtered?


    Its weird because I have worked as a volunteer, mentoring secondary school kids and had to do a crb check but nothing came up (I didn't disclose it then as I thought it had been deleted).

    I have also worked at a central bank and cleared that crb check too.

    Hi
    I've been reading all these posts to try and help me get a understanding of how this all works. I am applying for a nursing course but have a couple of things on my crb and was hoping for some advice. In 2005 I was given a reprimand for shop lifting but it is still appearing on my crb, I also have a caution for theft by finding from 2012, I was wondering if there was anyway I could get these removed as they are really holding me back.

    I don't think you'll be able to get them removed Paula, you will have to declare them, as you have 2 crimes for theft on your crb. It's better to be safe than sorry

    Do a subject access request, you should be able to get a form from any police station.

    Guys apologies but I'm not a student but need advise on this matter


    I was charged by the police for a minor shoplifting offence back in 1989 when I was 12, now I was put up in front of the childrens panel(youth court) and was basically told NOT to do it again and that was it..
    I have have many Disclosure Scotland checks(CRB/DBS) including basic/standard/enchanced. And nothing has shown up on these checks.


    In 2011 I became a member of the Disclosure Scotland PVG scheme to work with children and vulnerable adults, this check replaced the enhanced but checks everything ie government records, sex offenders register etc, again this came back with nothing to show..
    With the new law that started in May 2013, will this minor crime now be disclosed even if it hasn't been disclosed previous??






    Many thanks

    Hi.. my partner received a caution for theft of a motor vehicle when he was a teenager over 10 years ago.. he was with a group of around 15 people who all had a go of the bike & my partner was spotted riding it.. he was unaware it was stolen & his fingerprints didn't match those at the scene of the burglary yet he still received a caution & it now shows up on his CRB as theft, he may have been guilty of driving without a licence (but rode it on the paths) but surely theft involves being aware it's a stolen bike. Is there anything he can do to challenge this caution? given he is definitely not a thief & it's an unfair label to be given.
    Kind regards

    Dbs checks are a breach of human rights and should be scrapped
    If the government wish to label everyone
    I think its only s matter of time that everyone claims descrimination of your rights not to have your privacu invaded
    The dbs is a money making scam at your expense
    The sooner the freaks are out of no10 the better in 2015 pull out of the eu ship the deseased riddled foriegners including the polish and you will get a job no problem!
    Untill then im afraid you will continue to be abused by the abusers that will be brought to justice after the election

    Hi David. I recieved a caution 10 years ago and i am currently working as a volunteer for the probation service, they were aware of ny caurion from the start and had no problem with this. When i received the dbs form back my caution was no longer on there. I would now like to consider working within the prison service but i feel my caution will hold me back as it was drug related. Do i have to disclose my caution to them as it isnt showing up on my dbs check and it was a ling time ago? Regards Tallie
