Default K1 Visa. UK Police checks, Scotland in particular

Hi all,

I was wondering if any other Scottish posters (or anyone who knows really!) can help here. I have lived in Dumfries & Galloway and Lothian and Borders, so I applied to both forces for police checks. I paid £10 each and I ticked both boxes for information required. Is this right? Or is there a single doument that covers all Scottish forces? This is for my K1 Visa interview.

Thanks,

D.

dazeychain ,
I can only go by my experience in England earlier this year, I applied to Derbyshire Police. Thats where I was living although I had also lived in Birmingham (West Mids Police).
They forward all requests to Scotland Yard in London from where I got the reply.
I know Scotland is different in quite a few things but would assume that either all UK records are held in London or there would be one central Scottish location !!
I did also ring Derbyshire police, who have a Data Protection section, and they were very helpful. You could try that (Dumfries & Galloway and/or Lothian and Borders) and they should be able tell you !

Thanks for that, I supose at this stage I just get worried about EVERYTHING! I have had replies back from both forces, and London, so maybe they duplicate the search in Scotland? Or possibly that was because I ticked both boxes on the form.

Anyway, thanks
