Police Checks

How to complete a check

Have you been asked to complete a police check?

The Salvation Army is committed to ensuring our children, young people and vulnerable adults are kept safe in our working environment and when serving the community. Integrity Checks are required by law and for funding accreditation. For specific information regarding police checks, please refer to the following links:

The cost of the police check is covered by The Salvation Army. If you have received your police check results previously within the last 3 months, this could be used instead by providing a copy to your manager.

If you have concerns or further questions about the process or prefer to apply for your police check using a manual/paper form, please speak to your manager/corps officer who can provide you with further information.
