How do you know if you have a police caution?
Then, how long does a police caution last for?
Secondly, does a police caution show on a DBS check? Protected convictions or cautions are convictions or cautions which are filtered during the DBS check process - this means that they will not appear on the DBS certificate. Following this court case, the law was changed, and now certain types of conviction or caution will not appear on your DBS check.
Also question is, how is a police caution given?
A caution is a formal warning issued by police to someone who has admitted to having committed a criminal offence. Cautions are issued at the discretion of police, and enable a sanction to be given without going before the courts.
Do you have to declare a caution?
Once a conviction, caution, reprimand or final warning becomes spent, you do not need to disclose it to most employers, or when applying for most courses, insurance or other purposes (e.g. applying for housing).
