Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) policy

Staffordshire County Council's DBS retention policy (188 KB) includes information for secure storage, handling, use, retention and disposal of DBS disclosure information.

You can find further information about the DBS on the Home office website.

E-Bulk

We process all disclosures using an ‘E-Bulk’ online checking system. This helps prevent employment delays, eliminates disclosure application data errors and reduces administration.

If you need to complete a Disclosure Application Form as part of your job application you will be notified accordingly. The following guidance notes will assist you through the online process:

Disclosing convictions

Unlock, the national charity that provides information and advice services for people with convictions, has published a detailed guide all about the DBS checking process for people who have a criminal record.

The guide is called ‘Unlocking Criminal Record Checks’ and is available from
Unlock’s website. It contains information that will help those with convictions understand how the process works and how it impacts on them.

If you want to discuss your criminal record you can get in touch with Unlock via email or call 01634 247 350
