Can An Arrest Be Removed From Your Record?

Where a person has been arrested on suspicion of being involved in a recordable offence, has been charged with such an offence or has been informed that they will be reported for such an offence, the police have the power to take biometric data, including DNA and fingerprints.

However, there is a process, if eligible, whereby you can apply to have your DNA, fingerprints, photograph and Police National Computer (PNC) records deleted. This is information held on national police systems. In order to do this, you will need to complete and submit a record deletion application form to the ACRO Criminal Records Office – we are able to help you with this.

The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012

The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 followed on from the judgement in S and Marper v UK 2008, in which the European Court of Human Rights found that the “blanket and indiscriminative” retention of DNA from non-convicted individuals violated Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The key characteristic of the framework introduced by the Act does ‘not now’ permit the indefinite retention of biometric material unless the person from whom it was taken is, or has been, convicted of an offence.

In the absence of a conviction, in certain circumstances, it may be held for a specified period before being destroyed unless further retention is authorised.
