Fingerprint Destruction

Although you may have been acquitted, or your charges may have been withdrawn or stayed, your fingerprints and photos remain on record with the police. Your FPS number linking to your fingerprints and photos may be revealed in a criminal record search. Usually, it is possible to get this record expunged (known as a file destruction or purge) if you were not found guilty of the offence with which you were charged, assuming that you do not otherwise have a criminal record. However, if you have ever been convicted of a criminal offence you must apply through the usual record suspension or pardon process.
