Police checking time frames

The Service aims to process 95 per cent of standard police checks within 10 business days, noting that:

  • the majority (around 70 per cent of all checks submitted) are completed in real-time and results returned to you within minutes
  • up to 30 per cent may be referred to one or more police agencies and can take longer than 10 business days to be returned, because of the check’s complexity.
