I dont know if you can apply or the police have to. I have just had my CRB check for enhanced disclosure back as I will be working with kids, but the Uni applied for it.

If I hear of anything I shall let you know for sure.

The police mark your reaction out of ten and forward the result to DIMIA.

Just lifes little way of testing your resilience.

In the end filled in form took passports driving licence and utility bills and they sent the forms off from there!!

CRB checks are different - they are done for employment purposes, through an external body (the CRB!) although the checks are done by the police. Lots of different laws depending on what the job is - children, old people, taxi driver etc.
Checks for Immigration are Subject Access checks, done under the Data Protection Act. They are done through the local police, and cost £10. Many of the forces have their forms on line now. If you can't find a form that way, phone your local police HQ and ask for the Data Protection Office, then explain why you need the check.
Many little police stations will have never dealt with one, thats why many people get blank looks when they ask for a form!
The form will need various bits of ID with it - again varies from force to force. The form is sent to New Scotland Yard by your local HQ, and NSY will send the result back directly to you.
DIMIA need the ORIGINAL check, by the way, not a copy.

Hope this helps (seems a long time ago, but I used to do them!!)

Again it depends on your police force If you are the part of Kent policed by the Met, most police stations are able to verify the ID.
http://www.met.police.uk/dataprotection/forms.htm
Kent's website, which I have just looked at for the first time, is singularly unhelpful! I would guess you may need to send the ID off - the Data Prot Office could tell you, and it should be on the form.
http://www.kent.police.uk/csites/pol...a.html#P28_605
If you do need to send the ID off, it only goes to the local HQ then they return it to you while sending the form on to NSY, so the ID should be back very quickly.

Hi Alan and Sam,

we're in the Thames Valley Police area. We had to send off our passports with the forms for the police check. We got them back within a few days.

The guys at my local police station all looked at one another and then looked at me as if I'd just parked my space ship outside when I asked about Police Clearance...anway...a nice lady came from the back and said...'oh I know'.....yay..at last...Waited less than a month and it came...but low and behold...with a hideous typo...spelt my first name completely wrong...of course when I tried to call the office at New Scotland Yard it was all automated and all enquires have to be in writing...wrote and explained that I would like one wiht my name spelt correctly and haven't heard....sent another snotty letter today.....its been about 64 days...They are quick to cash ya cheques, but they're service is appalling!
