Volunteer National Police Certificate Program

Guidance
The Volunteer National Police Certificate (VNPC) Program is a partnership between the Department of Communities and the WA Police Force to reduce the costs and administrative requirements associated with recruiting volunteers.

The Department of Communities and WA Police Force have partnered to deliver the Volunteer National Police Certificates program at a discounted rate. Eligible organisations must register for the discount using the form linked below.

To be eligible, organisations must:

  • be an incorporated body such as an association, company, government organisation, or a co-operative
  • utilise volunteers in Western Australia for the benefit of the community
  • agree to the conditions of the Volunteer National Police Certificate program set out in the registration form linked below.

Only the central office of an organisation can register and it can only register once.  Unincorporated groups or sub-groups are unable to register individually.

National organisations with volunteers working in Western Australia may register to access discounted clearances for their organisation's volunteers in Western Australia.

Further information about the Volunteer National Police Certificate program is available on the WA Police Force website.

Individuals can only access a discounted Volunteer National Police Certificate through a registered organisation.

For more information about eligibility or access, email volunteering@communities.wa.gov.au.
