A National Police Check provides information on an individual’s disclosable court outcomes and pending charges sourced from the databases of all Australian police jurisdictions, subject to relevant spent convictions/ non-disclosure legislation and/or information release policies.

What is the purpose of a National Police Check?

Criminal history checks are the most common background check conducted by employers, and with good reason. When you open up your company to a new employee, you are exposing your business and existing employees to potential risks. Minimise that risk by following best practice hiring standards and by undertaking a comprehensive background check for each and every employee.

We are an accredited agency with the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC), so you can rest assured knowing the results you receive are validated.

How long does a National Police Check take?

Most National Police Checks are returned within 24 hours. In the case where a police check will need to be referred to a police agency, the police check may take up to ten working days or longer, depending on the intricacy of the check.

What data is collected?

In order to process a National Police Check, you will need to provide:
  • A minimum of four identity documents
  • Personal contact information
  • Your residential history for the past 5 years
  • All Previous/ Alias/ Maiden Name(s) (if applicable)

What results can be found on a National Police Check?

A National Police Check will detail any disclosable court outcomes or pending charges incurred across all Australian police jurisdictions. This might include:
  • Any conviction sentenced in court
  • Details pertaining to the court, date and location related to the conviction
  • Good behaviour bonds
  • Traffic convictions
  • Charges not yet convicted in court
  • Findings of guilt by a court

What is the difference between a national police check and an Australian Federal Police Check?

The primary difference between a national police check and an Australian Federal Police Check (AFP) are the sources they use and the data they collect. A national police check refers to state police records for convictions under state laws, whereas an AFP check refers to Commonwealth police records for convictions under federal law.
