I have just received my criminal police record check and it has charges of hindering a police officer and resisting arrest from 17 years ago. Is there any way I can get these wiped?

I thought after 10 years your criminal record can be wiped. I am going for a government job and even though these charges were from that long ago they obviously don't look good. It was when I was young and stupid.
