Request information about myself, other than my criminal conviction history, for my own personal interest

Thank you. You need to submit a right of access request, which is the official way to request personal information, such as crime reports, that we hold about you on our databases.

Here's how to apply:

Step 1: Download our subject access request form and read the guidance notes. 

Step 2: Print and complete the form and either scan it and email it to us or post it (email/postal address in the form) along with scans or photocopies of the relevant ID documents (details in the form).

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018, once you've submitted your request we'll respond within 30 days.

Please note, it's against the law for an employer, or potential employer, to ask you to perform a right of access request as part of a vetting process.
