Businesses and Individuals

If you run or manage a business, then you already know that replacing an employee is often a difficult and challenging task. Not only will you need to find, recruit and train a new staff member, but you will also need to put in extra time to make up for lost productivity.
Carefully screening job candidates before you bring them on board will reduce the number of potential risks that you may encounter. You can request the potential candidates to provide a national police check certificate so that you can take a close look at each potential employee’s criminal history.

In South Australia, you can obtain a Police Check from the South Australian Police. You can either download the application form online or obtain a manual application form from your local police station. To get your application processed, you are required to take your completed application form along with your IDs to the police station. Your application will then be processed by the police.

If you require a National Criminal History Check for employment, volunteer or industry accreditation purposes, you can also apply through Intercheck. Our process is completely online and you will be kept updated on the progress of your application in real time.

How long does it take for National Police Checks to be processed?

Once we have received all of your correct documentations (including copies of your ID and a photo of yourself next to your ID), your application will be processed and submitted to the police checking services.

From here, 80% of check results are returned within 1-2 business days, while 20% can be flagged by the state Police departments for further review and can take between 3-12 business days or longer.

We recommend that you allow sufficient time before making enquiries regarding your application.
