Police are often asked for a "Police clearance certificate"
or "Police record/file", especially by people applying for a
job overseas. New Zealand Police do not produce "clearance
certificates". However, you can
get a copy of your Criminal Record
- which should satisfy your need.
For information on how to access other people's criminal
record contact the Ministry of Justice, Privacy Unit
telephone 64-4-918 8800 or fax 64-4-918 8974 or by writing
to: Ministry of Justice, Privacy Unit, PO Box 2750,
A Criminal Record arises from a conviction,
therefore Criminal Records are held by the Ministry of
Justice, not by New Zealand Police. A Criminal Record is the
New Zealand version of; police clearance certificate, police
check, personal record, criminal check.

candidates just let an expert handle this process for them.
