Opinions please. I had to declare something on the form

Post by Justice911 » Fri Jun 09, 2017 11:20 pm

Hi guys,

So I've sent off all my vetting forms back. I had to declare something on the form which is really embarrassing so here it goes.

When I was 17 (2013) I was arrested for taking a bottle of milk off someone's door step. After a couple of hours in the cell I was then offered a Local resolution (community resolution)

I had to write an apology letter.

I know for a fact I wasn't convicted. And I also know my record shows "arrested- Theft". "Outcome- NFA"

On the vetting forms that's exactly what I put including the dates of the arrest.

Do you guys think I should call up SS and actually tell them what the "theft" was?
Or shall I just leave it?

I'm really scared that il fail vetting.

I did also declare some speeding points as well.


Thanks :)

Was it semi skimmed or full fat milk? 😀.

On a serious note, worrying about it won't make any difference to their decision so try not to. Seeing as it's fairly recent it might depend on any other incidents you might have been involved in besides this if any. And any other background information such as previous work history, education or any other information on your vetting forms etc. But seeing as no further action was taken, my personal feeling it you should be fine if you've declared it on your vetting forms. Good luck in any case!.

It was 100 percent full fat ;)


Thank you Andy.

Yes apart from that I just have some speeding points also.
I managed to get my own PNC check done so I have all the info the police hold.


Thanks :)

Does anyone know if I should call SS up and tell them the "details" about the offence?

I would say no mate, if the require more details from you they will contact you, plus it would have to be in writing as nothing over the phone would be official

I got sacked from a previous job, I declared it on the vetting and just recently (week 9) been emailed to ask what happened.

I've explained and hoping that they can look at my previously unblemished life history and see the positives.

It's been a very rough 9 weeks constantly in fear of that email to say if I've passed or failed!

If it makes you feel any better, i got arrested 6 year ago for breach of the peace, ( not my doing but i had to accept it) Unfortunately for me it was remembrance day so and suddenly all the right wingers turned up, i new a few from a few year before which was still on my facebook and i forgot. I got arrested with this group as i fitted in despite the fact i had nothing to do with them, i just looked the same ( causal, football hooligan look/dressed). So of course on my police vetting when i was applying for them they put two and two together and said no to me for a while longer than 6 years.

So far for here everything gone fine and i explained it and put it down.

Pnc will show nothing by the way, but vetting offers them to be able to dig deeper than what is shown on the pnc ( although i think that is only for police and ctc) these i think only do a standard pnc check. Everything yovue ever done or been nicked for will always be on record. It jsut gets wiped from the pnc after so long but it is still held on deeper records that can be checked.


So do not worry! YOu wil be fine, we all make silly mistakes :) You have declared it and thats all they want, a small theft of milk will not stop you fro getting in.

Thank you! Yeah it's just one of those things. I thought it was funny at the time but now I deeply regret it. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed.

I currently have been working for a bank for 2 years so I'm hoping that will show I'm trust worthy as I have dealt with a lot of money in the past. :)

Just for people information community/ local resolutions do show on the PNC. I know this as I have a record of my PNC record and it shows.


The only thing the PNC doesn't show is the details of the offence and driving offences :)
