FOI: 1210

For the period of 1st June 2013 to the 1st June 2014, I would like to know the number of enhanced DBS checks that had cautions/convictions filtered from the ‘police records’ section, but which had filtered cautions/convictions contained in the ‘other relevant information’ section.

Essentially, I am looking to establish how many enhanced checks had ‘filtered cautions/convictions’ disclosed in the ‘other relevant information’ section.
