Default ACPO and National ID Service

Good day all,

I will be happy if someone can helpme with the difference between the ACPO and the old National identification service/ subject access which gives one's information from the police national computer.

I am confused as to whether is the money for the government,

10 pounds to 35 or more ?

I had my NIS report as clean 2 months ago and am not sure if I will be asked to provide ACPO which is 35 pounds. help.

Hi, not sure if this answers your question but here goes. When hubby and I came out to Canada last year, we had a standard police check done (before we left the UK). These were only vaild for 3 months. Now that we are applying for pr, we've had to have the ACPO done for each of us at £35 a pop!!

We were told that a few countries use this scheme now - including Canada and that the 'old' checks would no longer be accepted after their 3 month validity.

If I understand correctly, the fee is to the police service (not the government) as they now only take 10 days to reply rather than weeks. It covers the cost of a dedicated system/supprt staff.

Hope that helps.

the format is slightly different. It's a very official looking certificate now that has your digitally recorded photograph on it together with holographic sticker thingies to make it look the part.

Apart from the speedy response, the big plus is that it is valid for 12 months.
