PNC Scottish Records

Steven Andrews made this Freedom of Information request to The Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales and Northern Ireland

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear The Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales and Northern Ireland,

If a Scottish Arrest Record (no conviction) was 'weeded' from the PNC, does it then not show up on an ACPO police certificate, i.e. will a single arrest without any subsequent conviction, weeded in accordance with Scottish legislation, mean that the certificate will still be clear and state "No Trace".

Yours faithfully,

Steven Andrews

Please see the response to

It states that only conviction data is uploaded to the PNC . In scotland an arrest record is weeded after 5 years. I would assume that an ACPO certificate would have a No Trace recorded but I look forward their reply

Dear The Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales and Northern Ireland,

As part of my recent FOI request regarding Scottish PNC records, could you also please clarify what actually happens to records on the PNC which have been transferred from the Scottish Criminal History System, at the end of a Scottish retention period.

For example, a scottish arrest record (not resulting in a conviction) - Is this removed permanently from the PNC at the same time as it is weeded on the scottish system, or is it 'stepped down' in the same way English arrest records might be?

Basically I would like to know the retention rules for Scottish data, particularly non conviction data.

Yours faithfully,

Steven Andrews
