Getting a DBS Check

Formerly known as “CRB checks” or “Criminal Records Bureau” checks, these checks allow employers to discover whether the people they are employing have prior criminal convictions that may be relevant to their position. Formerly called the Criminal Records Bureau, this department was superceded by the Disclosure and Barring Service, which defends the rights of the public and protects both the employer and the public in general by ensuring that dangerous individuals cannot get into position to cause harm.

The DBS check is carried out by performing a check of past criminal records and working out whether that bars or permits an individual to hold a certain job. To discover more about DBS checking, ordering a check or submitting your details for one, go to the official Home Office website (not this one, this isn’t it) or call the Home Office Head Office contact number on  0844 453 0225 from 8:30am-11:30pm any day of the week.
