Police Check (Vic Scouts Use Only)

Renewing  your National Police Check is a simple, two-step process:

  1. You need to provide certified copies of 100 points of identification. A list of suitable identification is attached here. You may scan and send these certified copies of identification to policechecks@scoutsvictoria.com.au or by post, addressed to the Privacy Officer, Victorian Scout Centre, 152 Forster Road, Mount Waverly 3149. Including your Registration Number will speed up the process.
  2. Once we have the certified copies of 100 points of identification, you will be emailed a link to an on-line application form to apply for your National Police Check. This should only take a few minutes to complete.

That’s it. The Scouts Victoria will contact you and update your record as appropriate.

Please do not undergo your own National Police Check.  This will not only cost you money, but it is most likely that you will not request a National Police Check that we can accept.   The National Police Checks that we conduct cover more than just Child Protection issues.
