    In Victoria first offenders can apply for a Diversion. What state are you in?

    Hi Tony, I was caught shoplifting at makeup store in Victoria. The police were called and my picture was taken by the store manager. I was also given a cautioning notice for a first time offence by the police but do not need to go to court.

    Is the cautioning notice in my criminal record?
    Will this affect my application for a citizenship/jobs in Australia?
    Will future employers know about my record?
    And is there a way to have it erased?

    I am currently a PR holder. It was my first and last attempt at something so stupid. Please seek to advise.

    No actual criminal history but police keep a record if future thefts. This cannot be erased. Future employers shouldn't be informed.

    I am unaware about PR status.
