If it's an outstanding warrant it may do

This may seem daft to some..or all..but why dont you (or your friend) just call and ask them...

I don't see why they wouldnt tell you generally what the check consists of...regardless of whose asking...

http://www.acpo.police.uk/certificates.asp

If its anything like a background check here, it would show up convictions, arrests, warrants, etc etc...

I recieved a caution about 7 years ago and it didn't show up on the police check.

Some things get "spent" after 5 years so they don't show up.

Tell them to tell the truth, then it won`t matter.

Ours came back "No trace" so read on the back what that meant - and they said they had no trace of arrests, cautions or convictions for the addresses we had listed living for the past 5 years.

So if you had an arrest at one of the addresses you listed during the past 5 years I am pretty sure it would be on the ACPO certificate.

However that doesn't mean that CIC would dismiss your case for it, since an arrest is not a conviction.

My son's cautions from 8 years prior showed up ... sigh.. but it didn't stop him getting PR (he was deemed rehabilitated under the stepped-down laws).

I think the above posts show how unpredictable an ACPO check result can be. Also, COs read B.E. (doesn't matter in this case but I have seen threads where it could have done).

I worked with PNC for 5 years. It certainly is not fullproof by any means. If you have any sort of record it CAN show up somewhere. Other agencies can check and they DO especially in Canada.

Declaring any past record must surely be the way to go. I guess it depends on the exact wording of the question on the form that you are filling in.

Just a word to the wise.

For an ACPO certificate nothing is "spent". Dependent upon the conviction and the passage of time certain records are "stepped down", these would show as "no live trace" on the ACPO cert.

My guess is that the recording of convictions is sometimes a hit-and-miss affair, i.e. someone forgets to record it on the PNC. You see the police are just human after all

I don't remember having to declare it for the police check.

I assumed it didn't show up because it was spent, but it may have been because it was a relatively minor thing (selling alcohol to someone under 18). Or they could have just forgot.
