A criminal record, police record, or colloquially rap sheet is a record of a person's criminal history. The information included in a criminal record and the existence of a criminal record varies between countries and even between jurisdictions within a country. In most cases it lists all non-expunged criminal offences and may also include traffic offences such as speeding and drunk driving. In some countries the record is limited to actual convictions (where the individual has pleaded guilty or been found guilty by a qualified court, resulting in the entry of a conviction), while in others it also includes arrests, charges dismissed, charges pending and charges of which the individual has been acquitted.
A criminal history may be used by potential employers, lenders, and others to assess a person's trustworthiness. Criminal records may also be relevant for international travel, and for the charging and sentencing of persons who commit additional criminal offenses.

In 2004 my husband was convicted of a high range DUI. He was issued a suspended sentence and never served any time in prison. He has not had any offences since. He recently had a police check done for new employment and after 16 years this offence is still on his criminal record.
I blew 0.52 and received a $572 DUI fine and a 3-month suspension but I want to know, will it go on my criminal record? It’s my first offence with no priors.
How hard is it to appeal for section 10? For jobs...

1. Is CIN part of or listed on a criminal record (AFP or NPC)?
