How long will a Police Check take?

Precise Background Services

Precise Background Services National Police Check is ACIC accredited and will detail all disclosable criminal history entries that are recorded for an individual in any Australian police agency.  All Australian National Police Checks are:
• Recorded in compliance with spent conviction legislation
• Include any current pending charges that have been initiated by the police
• May include traffic convictions.

ACIC and police agencies work together to deliver the Service, aiming to process 95% of police checks within 10 business days, noting that:
70% of all checks are completed within 1-2 business day
25% are completed within 10 business days as they’ve been referred to one or more police agencies because an individual’s name is similar to a person of interest.
5% may take 15 business days or more (depending on the complexity of the check).

Please note that neither you or Precise can predict if your check will be delayed and as such, we suggest you place your order at least 10 business days before you require your result.
