CRB checks - one rule for some...

You'll be aware of the CRB regime? Criminal Records Bureau checks are a necessity nowadays for almost anyone coming into contact with vulnerable people young or old.

Everybody has to have a CRB check - from a children's nanny to a care worker, even I, as a County Councillor has had an enhanced CRB check because of the contact I might have with vulnerable people in the course of my duties.

Yet I discovered out today during a meeting involving our Adult Protection officers that there's one profession who are not CRB checked.  Have a guess...

Why, Police officers of course. It's obvious.

Or is it?
