Police checks are one part of the risk management and screening processes organisations can adopt to ensure a safe environment. The Government is meeting the cost of police checks for volunteers who work with vulnerable groups such as children, the aged and frail, or people with a disability.
SwimmingSA Club Committee Members are required to have a current National Police Certificate which is no more than 3 years old.
Club Committee Members are able to secure a National Police Certificate at no cost via SwimmingSA. The process to do this is:
- Download the Application for National Police Certifidate from the SAPOL website.
- Have the form verified at your local police station.
- Send the verified form to SwimmingSA, we will endorse the application and submit to SAPOL.
- Once you have received your certificate provide your Swimming Club and SwimmingSA your certificates validation details.

NSW based residents (Broken Hill Clubs)
SwimmingSA does not have the ability to endorse your application for a police check as you do not reside in SA.
If you apply for a National Police Certificate through the NSW Police Department you will incur a cost.
However if you apply for a Working with Children Check as a Volunteer you can do so at no cost. The link for more information is http://www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au/working-with-children/working-with-children-check
