Australian Police Checks

Your check will be processed by InterCheck, a Certn company, who is accredited by the ACIC to provide criminal history results.

An ACIC police check runs your name against existing Australian police records and identifies disclosable outcomes such as:

  • Court convictions
  • Court appearances
  • Pending court matters
  • Charges
  • Findings of guilt without conviction
  • Traffic offences
  • Good behaviour bonds

While manual collection and processing hardcopy records can take weeks, our online platform connects directly to state and territory police databases to finalise most checks in 1-2 business days. For example, if you have a common name or a name that matches many potential Persons of Interest on policing systems, your results may take longer. If your check is taking longer than expected please reach out to our Customer Support team for more information.

A volunteer police check is for individuals who are seeking positions such as:

  • Volunteering with an Australian or overseas charity or not-for-profit; 
  • Volunteer foster carers; 
  • Students undertaking a compulsory student placement (this doesn’t include unpaid work experience or internships); and
  • Volunteering with a community organisation, such as a school, religious organisation, community sports group, or government council (including volunteer board members).

We offer a discounted price on police checks for volunteers. It’s the same Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check at $29.00. Click here to get started.

According to the ACIC website, “There is no standard timeframe that a check result is valid for. A check is considered a ‘point in time’ check only, which means the results only reflect police records on the date and time the result is released.” The organisation that requires the check will typically determine the timeframe for a check result to be valid.

“Review” means that a disclosable criminal record match has been found based on the information you provided. While inaccuracies are rare, they can happen. If you think there’s an error, you can file a dispute by completing this form or by contacting [email protected].

No one besides you receives a copy of the report you order through this service. Reports are sent securely to the email address provided in your application.

Your personal information is always treated confidentially. We collect your information for the purpose of verifying your identity and encrypt anything we receive. Information is retained for as long as it’s needed to complete the service. Learn more in our Privacy Policy.
