What is included in the NZ Police Vetting Check?

 

Similar to our criminal record check service, our police vetting service for people in NZ includes national criminal history checks and details about any convictions, including the location of the court, the date of the offence and the sentence imposed.

However, the police vet service we complete for you online is not limited to providing information about convictions and may also include information on active charges and warrants for your arrest.

Information regarding any concerns the New Zealand Police have in any context, including family violence matters, are included in the police vet check even if:

  • There have not been charges
  • Charges have been withdrawn or dismissed
  • Or the person has been acquitted (found not guilty) of a charge

Any other relevant information received or obtained by the New Zealand Police will be included in the NZ police vetting check you order online from CVCheck.

CVCheck’s police vet check service is conducted to obtain all relevant information on potential or current employees, volunteers and training staff. Similar to a criminal record check, our police vetting service is ideal for businesses across New Zealand and internationally.

Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, CVCheck is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information. Accordingly, CVCheck does not give any time guarantees for any checks or packages.
