Find criminal records in Australia through a variety of means.
Criminal History Checks in Australia are available through all state police services. These are predominantly used for the purposes of emplyment within the state of issue. Australian Federal Police Checks are also available and are suitable for the purpose of visa applications, adoption purposes, overseas employment, and those matters falling under commonwealth legislation. To obtain a check, many states have made available an online application, whilst paper based forms may also be printed and submitted. In addition to police services, organisations accreditted with Crimtrac are also offering National Police Checks.
Criminal convictions with recorded decisions may also be available through relevant court records. Whilst these records may be available, knowing which court, area and date to begin your search may prove difficult if wishing to consider the broader question of does someone have a criminal record?
