School records aren't checked as part of vetting. Neither are dental records or library borrowings.

They don't really prove or disprove anything useful though. You might have a well disciplined neo-Nazi who scored well in modern history but was conscious enough so that he didn't try and beat up the

Not so much as a decade, just a skim through for key words and links to undesirables.    Social media and finances brings the biggest vetting issues.

So it looks like if the database wasn't leaked, he would haven't been found out?

Tried to make sense of that sentence.  The officer would have been found out by his demeanour and behaviour in the job which his fellow officers would not have tolerated.  The fact remains that he should never have got that far as his activities should have shown up in any thorough vetting. It would appear that those vetting were taking good character for granted instead of a challenge.

He shouldn't have got that far in an ideal world, but what vetting process would have revealed he was the member of that group if the information wasn't available to those carrying out the vetting?

Police officer vetting is quite stringent and investigations are carried out by various methods known and unknown to the applicant and their associates. It wouldn’t be prudent to disclose all methods publicly, but sufficed to say, checks will have been made. Mistakes can also be made too, we are all human.  Remember, John Reginald Halliday CHRISTIE and Dennis NILSEN were constables too.

I would probably think that Dave SYP and myself have actually done some vetting. You enquire in the area that he/she lives, you enquire from Police Officers who Police there, from previous employers and even from the persons school.  You would be surprised what turns up. You cannot beat getting out there, in person, and asking.

Most people would be surprised at how advanced intelligence gathering has become in the police. Their capabilities have come on quite a lot.
