Can an employer ask me if I have a police record? OLD
Ask the police to remove information
You can ask the police to remove information about contact you had with them that did not lead to you being convicted of a crime.
For example, you may have been arrested and charged but the charges were withdrawn or you were found not guilty. You can ask the police to remove the information about the arrest or charge from your police record.
Or, you may have had contact with the police because you had a mental health crisis and there's information about this in their records. You can ask the police to remove this information.
You ask the police that arrested or charged you or that you had contact with to remove the information from their records.
And if they shared the information with other law enforcement agencies, you can ask them to ask those agencies to remove the information from their records.
If the police refuse to do what you ask them and you want to do something about this, you may want to get legal help.
