National Police Certificate or Police Record Check Print E-mail
Feb 04, 2014
Victoria Police provides a service to all Victorians who wish to obtain a National Police Certificate for voluntary work.
Changes to the National Police Record Check process

As of Saturday, 1 November, 2008 the following changes will apply to the Victoria Police National Police Record Check process.

  • A downloadable online application form will replace the current form.
  • Applicants can download, complete and print the new online form.
  • A 100-point identification check will be introduced.
  • An authorised certifier is required to witness and certify identity documents and signature of applicant.
  • The certificate will only be issued to the applicant.
  • To increase protection of information released, the new certificate includes seven security features.

 Refer to the Victoria Police website for more information on the new National Police Record Check process.

Also, organisations can now complete Police Checks - faster, easier and more securely than ever before.  If your organisation is either based in Victoria or has an office in Victoria, you may be able to utilise Crimcheck- the automated police checking service, or access a flyer on using Crimcheck. Alternatively Fit2work also provides capacity to complete online National Police Checks.

Victoria Police does not conduct police record checks for overseas applicants or for permanent residency. For these purposes, please visit the Australian Federal Police website.

Information about an individual's criminal history will not be released without an applicant's written consent other than for law enforcement purposes.

For a comprehensive recent report on the development and implementation of policy and legislation and an understanding of the difference across states refer to Pre-employment screening, Working with Children Checks and Police Checks report.
