“RELEVANT” INFORMATION FOR PURPOSES OF S.115(7) POLICE ACT 1997

Information that could be included in an enhanced criminal record certificate under the Police Act 1997 s.115(7) was information that was “relevant” and “might be true” and there was no requirement that the information was actually true. The decision whether or not to include such information was for the chief officer of police, and the ultimate decision as to what use to make of the information was for the prospective employer.
