Background Checks

Hello all,

Tricky question, so honesty is the best policy.

Back in early 2019 I got into a bit of danger by mistake and the police helped me out. I kept a police log of what was happening.

I found out in mid-2019 false allegations were made against me. However, the police did not contact me about these allegations.

Just to clarify, my criminal record is clean. I have no cautions, warnings, reprimands, spent convictions, or unspent convictions.

I assume the events of early-mid 2019 would show up in the background checks the Navy do?

I plan to tell my recruiter about the above at the interview stage. Is this the right thing to do?

I think that there is something to be said for letting the CA at the AFCO know about this now, so that he/she can speak to you on the phone and get further information if it's considered necessary.

Scroll down the page on this link to the bottom where it says

Find your nearest Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO)

and put in your postcode.


You should be able to see the contact details for the AFCO there, including their e-mail address.

I would send them an e-mail this week just saying what you have said here. It gives them extra time to seek clarification from CNR about your situation before your interview.
