My Enhanced Certificate from the Disclosure & Barring Service, April 2014

This is a photo of the Enhanced Certificate I received yesterday from the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) which last year took over from the Criminal Records Bureau in providing criminal records checks.

Here’s a twitter conversation yesterday about places of safety, mental health and criminal records, including the law relating to section 136 (and yes, it is an arrest; and yes, it’s up to police to decide whether to include it in an enhanced DBS check) from the perspective of award winning police inspector Mental Health Cop.

I’ll write this up into a blog when it’s not bedtime! I’m having to be strict with my bedtime routine at the moment to try to get back on an even keel.

Night night.
