National Volunteer Police Check
The National Volunteer Police Check is designed to assist organisations adequately screen volunteers in working positions of financial trust or involved in driving or other special duties that provide services to vulnerable people.
Checks cost $14.80 per application.
Download the form and submit along with 100 points of identification to SLSWA.
SLSWA will then forward applications to the Police department for processing. Once checks are returned, SLSWA will contact clubs via letter of members who do not have a record. Those with a record will be contacted directly by SLSWA and need to obtain a National Police Certificate at their own expense.
Once checks are approved, SLSWA will contact clubs via letter.
Clubs are then required to update SurfGuard.
