You have the right to raise a dispute of your Police Check


We take every precaution to ensure that National Police Check results are accurate and valid. A National Police Check requires your details to be checked against a national database with information sourced across multiple police jurisdictions. This means that unfortunately, errors sometimes do occur. If you believe your police check results are invalid or inaccurate, you have the right to raise a dispute.

You can dispute your National Police Check results if:

  • You believe the outcome to be inaccurate
  • You believe the information should not have been released
  • Part or all of the information does not belong to you

  • How can I dispute my National Police Check results?

    As an accredited agency, ProbityPeople can assist you in disputing your National Police Check results. To raise a dispute, please email us at enquiries@probitypeople.com.au with a summary of your claim and any supporting documentation you may have. We will then lodge a dispute on your behalf to the relevant police agencies for investigation.


    How long will it take to receive an outcome?

    Depending on the complexity of the check, your dispute can take anywhere from one day to one month to be determined. The police agency investigating your dispute may need to source further information from external parties which may delay the outcome. ProbityPeople will keep you informed and updated on the progress of your dispute. For further information, please visit the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC).
