HiThank you for your question and welcome to Just Answer. I will try to help with this. Please RATE my answer OK SERVICE or above.-Could you explain your situation a little more?
I had an allegation made and when the children were asked if I hit then the 3 year old said i hit and it hurt but i'm never naughty. I was interviewed by the police and nothing came from it except they said a note would be put on my extended CRB form, without an outcome.
I'm afraid realistically its very unlikely you could get this removed.An allegation has been made against you. If you are a fosterer that is a relevant consideration unfortunately. Enhanced checking CRB shows everything including malicious allegations. There has been recent case law on that point and even malicious allegations are to remain on CRB I'm afraid.If the entry is incorrect in the sense that it does not accurately record the allegation that was made about you then you can ask the Chief Constable to correct it under the Data Protection Act. If its just that you dispute the allegation then the DPA doesn't apply.Failing that you could ask the police to remove it using their exceptional procedure although the chances that would happen are quite low unfortunately. Generally they err on the side of caution. You could judicially review the decision to refuse to remove it but thats an expensive action with a high test.Sorry thats probably not the answer you wanted but it is the position that you have and I have a duty to give you truthful and accurate information even though its not what I want to say.Hope this helps. Please rate my answer OK SERVICE or above and then I will continue with this for free.
