WHAT DOES CRIMINAL RECORD MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Criminal record

A criminal record or police record is a record of a person's criminal history, generally used by potential employers, lenders etc. to assess his or her trustworthiness. 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 offenses and may also include traffic offenses such as speeding and drunk-driving. In some countries the record is limited to actual convictions, while in others it also includes arrests, charges dismissed, charges pending, and even charges of which the individual has been acquitted. The latter policy is often argued to be a human rights violation, since it works contrary to the presumption of innocence by exposing people to discrimination on the basis of unproven allegations. Companies often don't have any criminal record registration, nevertheless they consist of humans which still are able of acts with criminal intend.
