What is the time limit before a bindover can be stepped down?
Does this mean previously stepped down information can now be stepped back onto the pnc?
Also the supreme court recently increased the threshold for disclosing information..
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/lawandorder/6461335/Criminal-record-checks-gone-too-far.html cant find the ruling; have you any views on this
I don't think they could do that.
I hadn't heard of that ruling either. The latter is quite badly reported considering how important it is.
If you have a look here though
Im sure it would show up with a few days. I'm surprised it hasnt' hit already.
Just to clarify - Information stepped down will not show on an enhanced disclosure, all other information if entered onto the pnc will. What about information of bindovers that are not entered onto the pnc - a subject access request will determine this, will this be disclosed.
The police are no longer stepping down information - do you for-see anytime soon, a review of the way disclosures are handled with aged data
I dissagree - bindovers are not always recorded on the PNC - the PNC holds records of convictions cautions warnings and reprimands www.criminalbar.com/86/records/33/BIND%20OVERS.doc.
Have you any idea how long the cps keep case files for?
