    hey,

    So I have to do. Dbs check for a job in the public sector. Only I was once arrested for abh when I was 13 but it never went to court and the charges where dropped because I didn't commit the crime . Will this come up on the dbs and prevent me from getting a job?

    No. You will be fine. Arrests can show depending on the level of DBS check and whether the police think its relevant for the job you are applying for. The fact you said you didnt do anything and they dropped any charges would indicate nothing will come of it.

    Nah you'll be all good! Wouldn't make much sense for arrests to cause innocent people to lose job opportunities.
