Police records arise from facts typified in the current Penal Code as crimes of an administrative nature that have given rise by the State Security Forces and Corps to the instruction of proceedings and their subsequent referral to the Judicial or Administrative Authorities.
In the National Police Force, unfavorable police records are recorded in the file called “PERSONS” for the management of records of persons of police interest or better known as “PERPOL”.
In the Civil Guard, police records are collected in the file of Police Interest called “INTPOL”.
Therefore, if you have ever been arrested or identified by the State Security Forces and Corps, for the alleged commission of a crime or administrative infraction, it is possible that your data may appear in a police database and therefore you may have a police record.
If after your identification or detention by the Police for the alleged commission of a crime, an acquittal is pronounced or the case is filed, you can request its cancellation from the finality of the Judgment or from the Order of filing.
In the event that you appear in any of the above mentioned registers, which can be verified by means of the corresponding request, you must fill in the corresponding cancellation form, which will be different depending on whether you appear in the register of the National Police or in that of the Civil Guard.
