Police Checks

police form badge

Anyone who works or volunteers with children, youth or families must undergo a police check prior to their appointment.

The Application form for a Police Check must be completed by the Session Clerk.

Pages 1 and 2 of each  Request and Consent form should be filled in by the session clerk and pages 3 and 4 by the applicant.

When police checking multiple people, the application form only needs to filled in once, but the Request and Consent form needs to be filled in for each police check.

The Police Vetting Service will only process Consent Forms that are signed within the last three months.

Before you send a consent form to us, please check

  • The Date and Place of Birth have been entered.
  • The person is over 17 years of age.
  • The form has been signed within 3 months.
  • You have attached the photo identification.

An application form should be completed and signed by the Session Clerk. If your parish is taking part in the OSCAR programme, be sure to tick this box as we can then return the original consent form to you for your parish audit.
