Hello, thank you for the question.

A warning shouldn't appear on a normal records check. That shows convictions and dispositions, or sentences.

A vulnerable sector screen shows more information. Even then, a warning for a minor charge like shoplifting won't appear unless there's a good reason otherwise.

Your cousin should be just fine.

Anything else to discuss? If not, may I have a positive service rating please?
