Do I disclose a community resolution?

Post by darby0209 »

Hi I was wondering if anyone could help please. Basically i did something daft 16 months ago and got a community resolution, i have no further criminal record. Since this happened, i have had 2 enhanced DBS and also passed vetting for the Royal Marines - the community resolution never showed up on anything. Will i need to disclose it for the vetting for a prison officer? worried it will ruin my chances.

Many thanks for any help and advice

If they see that your hiding something there's trust issues then.

Disclose it all. It's better than something coming out a year down the line and losing your job.

I’d imagine vetting is a pass or fail before they give you the job? Dishonesty on the application forms would be picked up quite quickly wouldn’t it??

Have a question regarding vetting. I was caught speeding about 2 years ago. Received a fixed penalty notice but took a speed awareness course in lieu of points. Do I need to declare that? No issues doing it but wasn’t sure!

I disclosed all speeding fines for last 20 years there are no record but shows honesty and integrity in doing so. I wasn’t sure either so called SSCL and a really great guy went through it all and explained that disclosing and not showing up is a really good thing.
