NZ Police Vetting Checks (For persons working with children and older people only) Organisations providing services to vulnerable people (this includes children, older people and people with special needs) can ask the New Zealand Police to vet (check) people who want to work or volunteer for them.
The difference between a Ministry of Justice criminal record check and is that the criminal record check only covers convictions. As well as your criminal record, police vetting can also include information on any contact you’ve had with the police.
