Description

This dataset shows the number of discretionary barring referrals made to the DBS by sector in relevant calendar years. They relate to the number of referrals made by that sector and do not relate to individual cases within that sector – eg: in most cases the police will have made the referral of an individual, as part of their casework and safeguarding duties, not because it is a member of their staff who is being referred.
