How long does a criminal record stay on police record

Resolved Question:

How long does a criminal record stay on police record

Thanks for the clarification.

The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 enables some criminal convictions to become 'spent', or ignored, after a rehabilitation period which depends on the sentence that you received.

However, even if it is classed as spent, it may still remain on your police record(PNC).

Hope this helps.
