What is the fastest way to get a National Police Check?
Whilst, in some circumstances, it can take up to 3 weeks to get a Police Check via the AFP or your local police station, one of the fastest and easiest ways to get a Police Check is to submit it through National Crime Check. You can have your report emailed directly back to you! The police check application form takes less than 5 minutes online via National Crime Check - simply follow the prompts.
One your check is processed you can have your national police check emailed electronically to you (usually within 24-48 hours) or a hard copy delivered in the post (Or both!). Note that approximately 75% of our checks are back within 1-2 business days of lodgement.
Can it take longer than 2 business days to get my National Police Check?
Whilst most police checks via National Crime Check are returned in 1-2 business days, there are situations where police checks can take longer to be returned to applicants.
In the cases above the CrimTrac Police Background Checking Service goes through a process of investigation before releasing any information. This process cannot be escalated, interfered with or followed up until 12 business days have elapsed - and is out of the hands of any agency who has lodged the check for you.
National Crime Check's Automatic Follow-up on Police Checks
National Crime Check advocates monitor all checks daily and will automatically escalate follow-up at the 12 day mark on your behalf with the CrimTrac agency.

How long are Criminal History Checks valid for?

Free Police Checks?
All Police Checks in Australia, regardless of where you are working or if you are a Volunteer require you to pay a fee in order to verify and retrieve your data.
