The Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2015 amends Article 50 (2A) Criminal Justice (NI) Order 2008 so that a member of the public can make an application for disclosure of information concerning convictions relating to sexual and violent offenders.
Disclosure in these circumstances can only take place where it is deemed that the person presents a risk to the child. Additionally, disclosure will only take place to the person who has responsibility for the child and/or is best placed to safeguard the child, e.g. a parent, carer or guardian.
To make an application under these arrangements you should fully complete this form and bring a printed copy of it, IN PERSON, to a police station. You will be required to prove your identity using one (or more) forms of photographic identification and also be required to remain at the station to answer any clarification questions and sign the declaration regarding disclosure. Should you be unable to get access to a printer, blank copies of the form can be obtained at a PSNI Station.
For details of PSNI Station opening hours please select your Local Policing Area in your District.
