Police Checks

The safety of all people is enormously important to the Diocese of Waikato and Taranaki.  As such, the Bishops establish an individual's background prior to confirming them into a position of responsibility in order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all, especially the young and the vulnerable in the Diocese and to ensure appropriate management of finances.

The Diocesan Policy is available to download here.

The information supplied through the police or criminal conviction history check may only be used by the person requiring the information, cannot be shared between organisations, and needs to be renewed every three years.

Police checks (or their equivalent and for those under the age of 18 appropriate character references) of individuals are required to be obtained when an individual is appointed or elected to an office or a position where that individual has:

  1. financial responsibilities (criminal conviction history);
  2. responsibilities for working with the vulnerable (police check); or
  3. responsibilities for working with children and young people under the age of 18 (police check).
