    After 60 days you can escalate this as a delayed application. Speak to whoever processed the application for you.

    It is worth saying that while most applications do not take this long it is neither enormously uncommon for them to, nor a sign that anything is wrong. If you live in a high crime area it is common for there to be a backlog of applications needed to be checked at the station - assuming you mean an enhanced DBS anyway.
