Sounds like the admin people in the police station you went to have screwed up... I
was told to allow a month but got it in about 2 weeks. That was about 3 weeks ago.
Scotland Yard's computers might go down but the PNC where the info is held does not.
They have multiple backups and plenty of redundancy built-in. Time to get stroppy
with them...

As far as I aware, but please do not quote me on this, if you've not received your police checks within 3 weeks you have to apply for them again......so pester them and don't be fobbed off or you'll have to pay again.

We sent off for ours just over 3/4 weeks ago, and it arrived last week. I was told
they were "obliged" to send it back within 40 days (probably one of those government
charter thingies) - so I'd contact them again if I were you....

Nicki

PS - Have they cashed your cheque? They didn't cash ours until a couple of days
before it arrived.

You don't have to pay again. You should allow forty days from the date of application
and contact the police again if you have not had a response by then. I my case I got
an acknowledgement of receipt of application within two weeks, and the Police check
followed a couple of days later.

Cheers

I've had to do police checks 3 times now (live in Scotland) and they all came back
within the week. It's just some lazy bugger can't be arsed if it takes longer. Try a
different station if no joy.
