WHAT IS EXPUNGEMENT OF A CRIMINAL RECORD?

  • Expungement of a criminal record is a process by which a criminal record of a convicted offender is expunged from the criminal record database of the Criminal Record Centre of the South African Police Service.
  • This allows a person to carry on with life without a criminal record being an obstruction to employment opportunities.
  • This service is rendered free of charge by the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development.

WHEN CAN A PERSON APPLY FOR AN EXPUNGEMENT OF A CRIMINAL RECORD?
