Police Check

Hello All, Anyone know how & where & if you can get a police check in France?

In the UK I think it’s a CRB (criminal records bureau) or DBS (not sure!)
It’s for an interview in the UK - and I’m thinking ahead - in the uk it’s pretty easy online. It’s not for working with children. thanks, Teresa

This one?

It is the DBS now

Extrait de Casier Judiciaire. You need to ask for one from the Ministry of Justice, I think there is an online application process now (can’t remember exactly, as last time I asked for one was a while ago). In normal circumstances, you should receive a corresponding letter in about 10 working days. I seem to recall that you have to have lived in France for a certain time though before they can issue one (5/10 years ?)

Very easy, and free. I had to get the basic one a couple of months ago and I got it returned to me in about a week. No requirement to have been resident for any set time.

OMG ! it’s £23 in the UK !!!

brilliant reply Jane J - thanks so much

£23??? My ACPO Police Check for international use was £55, and that was Jan this year??


Hm. that’s a crazy amount of money. It’s not for international use - I need it for the UK - so maybe that’s the difference in price.

Rip Off Britain :wink:

Why use taxes for public service, when you can get the public to pay taxes and pay for public services ? :rofl:

Hey guys,

Just wondering what do I need for a dbs check in France? ID and what else?

Hi @Amarilda_Tokaj
I think this is what you need to look at

I used to have Secret clearance, but it didn’t cost me a penny.
