In order to mitigate potential risks for companies and businesses, most employers require a Police Check prior to hiring employees.
Candidates who complete a Police Check in the pre-employment stage gain an advantage in the job market, as they are regarded as more organised, professional and eager for the position.
This will not only make you stand out from a pool of applicants but also speed up the recruitment process, which will only make the job hunt much easier.
If you are 16 years old or above, you can obtain a Police Check by lodging an application through the NSW Police. Alternatively, you can obtain a National Police History Check through InterCheck for a fast, easy, and seamless service.

When does the National Criminal History Check expire?
A National Criminal History Certificate does not have an expiry date. It depends on your employer’s policy to determine what period of time a National Criminal History Check is acceptable. Please check with them directly before applying for a new check. In some cases, due to legal requirements, some certain industry requires you to renew your police check after a period of time such as nursing, aged care,..
How do you know a police check is authentic?
