PNC details wrong

Postby TenaciousB » Mon Oct 30, 2017 4:28 pm

In a court hearing I discovered that someone has used my name as an alias, with my date of birth and my address. They have committed crimes in the North East which are now on the PNC under my name. How could that have happened? Do I now have to go to the trouble of writing to the Chief Constable of the Police force to get them removed?

Did the Police not identify the person's true name, date of birth, and address?

There was another name, but only one address; mine. It was the clerk of the court that was reading the information, there were no Police present.

How much trouble is it to write to the Chief Constable?

Considerably more effort than the Police getting the information right in the first place.

If it is too much trouble then leave it.

I have to wonder if the Police's decision to prosecute was swayed by my false previous.

No. The police are watching you and monitoring your emails. They know now and will hide the details more thoroughly and pretend it never happened.

How could this have happened. Well, let me see now. Someone who knew where you lived gave a false name and address. That'll do it. As long as that individual gave your details when he was first arrested then it's not that difficult. Or it could have been you, trying for the crappiest alibi in the history of crime. Or not, as the case may be.

Of course. A major element in a decision whether to prosecute or caution is whether a prospective chargee has previous.
