    Hi I just wondered if you could help me,
    I was cautioned when I was 12 or 13 for assault, I am now 18 and haven't been in any trouble since, will this show up on a CRB check?
    The answer to this depends on precisely what form of 'Assault' you were cautioned for. There are certain assault offences that will never be filtered from a DBS certificate. You can see for yourself a complete listing of these offences from the DBS link posted above. For example, if you were cautioned for an assault with intention to resist arrest or assault occasioning actual bodily harm, it will always show on a DBS certificate.

    But If you were cautioned for (example) a common assault (Criminal Justice Act 1988 s39) and you were under 18 at the time of the offence, then under the 'filtering rules' introduced in 2013, such a caution will be removed after 2 years have elapsed.

    You need to identify precisely what offence of assault you were cautioned for to answer your question.

    Hi David,
    I'm supporting a work colleague with an interesting twist where a simple caution was issued, following lengthy investigations, that I'd rather not discuss in full on here.
    Would you be so kind as to call me on 07825817670 when you are able to for a little bit of advice on the caution iissued.

    Thank you.

    I cannot understand why everybody is so caught up with the whole DBS thing, at 18 I was arrested and the case was a big case went to court, I got 2 years suspended, community service and legal costs I had to pay, 29 years later, every job I have applied that I need DBS check for nothing has ever show, then in 2008 I won a big case in medical negligence, DWP took me to court in overpayment of benefits even though the monies was put in trust for my son which is allowed, this did appear on DBS but still got the job.

    It depends on what it was for, some are never filtered.

    If that is the case and it's an admission of guilt then I hope it gets sorted out and a bit of normality Is put in place. I was arrested 4 years ago, it was a group of us and a wrong time wrong place situation. At the police station I was sleep deprived and later on when I was given my caution I did ask if it would effect my record (yes I was clueless) they informed me it would not. So by what your saying I have now admitted to something I had no participation in. This country can be a bit docile though so it does not suprise me. Fortunately all the checks that have been done on me (which is annually) this has not been flagged up so it does restore a little faith :-)
