Police Checks

The NZ Police have added a new section to their police check request process called “Evidence of Identity”. A second form of identity (e.g. passport, original birth certificate) is required in addition to the Driver’s license or Community services card. The agency that is requesting the check also need to sight the two ID documents and sign a document saying that they are satisfied with the correctness of the Applicant’s identity. The Diocese is happy with ‘a trusted representative’ of your ministry unit to sign off that section.

The Diocese is no longer using a form numbering system and asks that all submitted forms to the diocese specify clearly on the form which Ministry unit is requesting the vetting. The form is now available for downloading on our website here, and needs to be returned to Suzie Lewis the Diocesan Manager’s P.A. at:
