According to the Australian Federal Police, businesses lose at least $1.5b each year to offences carried out by employees, accounting for 80% of all workplace crime. With businesses needing to protect their reputation to remain credible and trusted to investors, prospective employees and volunteers are increasingly being required to provide a police background check throughout the interview process to determine their viability and suitability for a particular role.
The National Police History Check (NPHC) product provided by Information Brokers can process police checks for employment or volunteer purposes. This is a convenient and quick wayto provide the required information to an employer as soon as possible.
Who Is It For?
A National Police History Check can be ordered by both an employer conducting an investigation on a prospective employee, or a candidate for a job or volunteer role that has been asked to provide a National Police Certificate in the interview process.
For a number of industries, a criminal record leaves an applicant unsuitable or legally forbidden from a particular role. A National Police History Check returns a report containing an individual's personal and criminal history if applicable.
The purpose of the check is to:
Reveal any history of misdemeanors or criminal records attached to an employee
Ensure the person is who they claim to be and not an alias
Confirm or reject the information an employee provides when submitting an employment application
Provide an indication of the individual's behaviour and characteristics.
Allow employers to make a measured assessment about the suitability of candidates for a particular role.
The Application Process
Applying for a National Police History Check (NPHC) is a simple process. The only requirements are a signed consent form and 100 points of certified ID.

3. CONSENT AND CONFIRMING IDENTITY
Once all details have been provided, a pre-populated consent form can be downloaded, which must be printed off and signed before uploading atthe final step.
Certified ID – which can be verified at your local police station free of charge – will need to be uploaded at the final step as well. If not sure about 100 points, we have an ID calculator which can be used as a guide.
