Just make a SAR at Acro:
https://www.acro.police.uk/subject_access.aspx

You can get one by email in a couple of days.


thanks for the tip. I've just put in my request. 

I'm still wondering if the DWP have the right to make me give them information on spent convictions?

Hi,
first good luck with the application

Secondly, does "not" having the right really stop employers, governments, society etc from asking what they do? 
You will notice that most Government areas for example, do something and if it is illegal and they are caught out, they just say
We have amended and improved our procedures and retrained our staff
I am sure we would of loved that sort of punishment.




You're spot on.

Hi,

I have recently completed a Pre-Appointment Form for a position as a Work Coach with the DWP. 

There were questions that I was very concerned with answering under the Conduct section. I do have convictions but they are spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act and are not on the Barred list. 
Is the DWP exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act? I have looked online and I can't find any information that they are which, if this is true, means they should be only be asking for details of offences that are not spent. It did not state this on the Pre-Appointment Form. 

Could someone let me know if they are exempt and under which legislation? 

Thanks

John
