A Police Clearance Tasmania is a collation of police and conviction history information about an individual that has been determined releasable by Australian police agencies.
Employers and workplaces commonly require a Police Check in places like Hobart and Launceston before placing persons in employment positions or within a position of trust.
If applicants require a check that is issued by the Tasmania Police Force, this can only be obtained directly through the Tasmania Police Force. Australian National Character Check is not affiliated with the Tasmania Police Force and applicants must obtain one directly through their website. This will require you to have your identification documents certified via authorised personnel (in person at a police station or other applicable means). The process is not entirely online. Applicants should allow a minimum of 10 working days for a check by the Tasmania Police Force to be issued.
The base price for a police clearance certificate is $48.90. It is emailed directly to applicants in Hobart and Launceston. The certificate is commonly used for Employment positions, Volunteer positions and a variety of Australian Licensing and Registration schemes.
Applicants can securely pay to obtain a Police Clearance Tasmania online via credit card, debit card or PayPal.
The Police Clearance Tasmania certificate displays all disclosable court outcomes that are considered releasable by Australian police agencies in accordance with spent convictions legislation. For example, if an individual had disclosable court outcomes in Victoria (VIC) and Queensland (QLD), the Police Clearance Tasmania will contain information on the disclosable court outcomes for those jurisdictions. Some convictions however may be spent and may not appear on the police clearance certificate. Information on the spent convictions scheme can be found here.
Persons who have direct or indirect contact with vulnerable persons are more likely to have older convictions displayed on their Police Clearance Tasmania certificate.
The National Police Check is a collation of police and conviction history information from all Australian states and territories. Hence the criminal record clearance undergoes vetting in the following jurisdictions: Victoria (VIC), Queensland (QLD), Northern Territory (NT), New South Wales (NSW), Australian Capital Territory (ACT), Western Australia (WA) and South Australia (SA).
