Default Police Checks

Hi

Can anyone help or give advice??

My husband and I are now just waiting for our police checks to come through for us and our 17 yr old son. We are living in Scotland and applied to the Data protection people with Strathclyde Police. They kindly wrote back with a letter a week later saying they do not deal with this here but our applications have been forwarded to the National Identification Service in London.

When reading threads about police checks most people are talking about the www.acpo.police.uk Have we applied for the right thing??

Has anybody else in Scotland had this done - if so was the information received accepted in your ITA??

Please advise
Thanks
Sam

Hi Sam

Here is a link to a thread I started about police checks. http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=517007

I got my Disclosure Scotland back in 7 days but it took the full 40 days for the UK part to be returned. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that

Had our local police check back very quickly so just going to have to more patient and wait, and wait and wait

Sorry nodded off there - just being very impatient

We sent off our forms (cost £10 each, from the local Police station) around 3 weeks ago. We had acknowledgement a week later but still not had them back. These were the only things holding up our visa application so opted to pay the £70 each (ACPO special ones) & had them back in 4 days!
Expensive (and a waste of the original £20 we spent) but EVERYTHING is expensive in the emigrating game!
