Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience of how a community resolution order (CRO) or similar entry on their record has been dealt with when requesting a DBS check. As the intention of the order is to be informal (certainly less so than a caution) I am wondering if anyone here has actually had them disclosed at all on a DBS certificate or if they will have been filtered as a matter of course. Earlier this year I sent an email to unlock with this enquiry and Chris kindly replied. If you don't mind Chris I'll post your reply below, please feel free to delete if it's inappropriate:
''My understanding would be that a CRO would be regarded as non-conviction information, and so not disclosed automatically. In that sense, it's not covered by the DBS filtering process, in that it wouldn't have been disclosed automatically before filtering came into place. However, it will be treated in the same way as other 'police information', in that it'll be up to the Police as to whether to disclose it, but this can only happen on enhanced disclosures, and rarely does this happen.''
Has anybody found this to be the case in practice yet? It would be good to hear your opinions!
