Criminal Records......

Currently waiting for a response from Hampshire Constabulary, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Hampshire Constabulary,

It has come to me and my associates interest that you employ people with criminal records.

1) How do your in-house checks differ to the Disclosure and Barring Service (CRB) checks ?

2) Some of the people who work for you have criminal records, and as such would not be employed to work with vulnerable people" so how can you justify giving them jobs as police constables ?

3) Simon Weston (Falklands Veteran) has a criminal record from the seventies, and was stopped from giving lectures in schools. What do you class as okay for people with criminal records to work for you ?

4) How many police constables employed by yourselves have criminal records from 2013 to 2016 ?

5) Can you tell me who gave you authority to be judge and jury with regards members of the public not to work with vulnerable people ?

Yours faithfully,

peter danby and associates
