Police caution
Oct 4th, 2006 at 8:01pm
 
After considering evidence the Police sometimes issue a caution to an individual instead of charging him with any offence. What exactly does this caution mean, is it registered as an offence, does that person then have a ' record ' and how long does that caution remain in effect.

I think this has already been answered in the following thread:

Wrong I'm afraid.

It's the country in which you are cautioned, rather than the country in which you are domiciled which has jurisdiction.

Lainy, your post seems to suggest that if you live in Scotland then you will not have a criminal record if cautioned, regardless of the country in which you are cautioned.  Consider the situation where a Scottish resident is collared and cautioned in England and I think you'll appreciate the difference...
