You do not have to say anything, but anything you do say...

Most of us hope we will never hear those words, but what if you do?

What happens if you are arrested, accused of something you haven’t done?

Life can throw the unexpected at us sometimes.

We are all responsible for our own actions, but it is hard to predict the actions or reactions of others.

What is said and done in the heat of the moment can have a lasting impact on our lives, particularly our professional careers.

So, what does happen if you are arrested and then released without charge?

What Does Released Without Charge Mean?

In this case, you will usually be informed that nothing will be on your record, as if the incident never happened.

However, in some cases, this is not completely accurate.

While you will not have a criminal record, there will be a record that you were arrested.

This may show up if you apply for an enhanced DBS disclosure, or in the alternative, your employer may require that you disclose any legal matter you have been involved in, regardless of the outcome.
