Requests for information for employment purposes

West Mercia Police does not provide Police National Computer (PNC) disclosures for employment vetting services.

The current procedure whereby companies require individuals to exercise their rights under Subject Access provisions at section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998, as a form of vetting is against the spirit of the legislation. When Section 56 of the Act is implemented, it will become a criminal offence for the employer to ask individuals, as a condition of employment, to go through this process.

If you require a disclosure for employment purposes, you should instead apply for this information via the Disclosure Scotland agency, which also handles enquiries from areas in England. Please contact Disclosure Scotland on 0870 609 6006 or via their website
