    Default police clearance help

    hi i applied for a job... I need to get a police check for it...

    Now im freaking out.. 4 years ago when i was 16 i shoplifted.. Was caught but never went to court. Will it show up? How does it all work? Does it list anything and everything youve spoken to the police about or only if u went to court....

    Please help

    I stupidly did the same thing when I was younger, got my finger prints done, went to court and got fined. I applied for the clearance check and surprisingly nothing showed up.

    I'm not sure how it works though, but I know if it's been more then 5years(I think, could be longer) it doesn't show up on your record.

    Juvenile matters won't show up unless they were of a sexual or serious nature such as serious assault, armed rob etc

    Minor larceny charges as a juvenile shouldn't be of concern
