Police Vetting

Thanks for volunteering with our Junior Club. Police Vetting is an important part of coaching/volunteering with kids, to ensure safety of everyone involved.

The vetting form needs to be completed by all Coaches U8 and above, who are new to coaching or are due for repeat vetting (every two years). If you have previously been vetted for another organisation, we still need to follow the process as well.

Please download and fill in pages 3 and 4 ONLY on the form below, and email to policevetting@tawafootball.org.nzThe pdf should be editable, just fill in, save and email.

Following this, I will need to sight two forms of ID. Acceptable forms of ID are below. If I (Nicola Griffin) have met you before, these may be emailed. Otherwise, IDs must be seen by me in person. This can be done at the upcoming Coaches evening, or email to arrange another time.

To confirm the identity of the person being vetted, two forms of ID must be sighted, one primary and one secondary, one of which must be photographic.

Primary IDs include:

  • Passport (NZ or Overseas)
  • NZ Firearms Licence
  • NZ Full Birth Certificate (issued on/after 1998*)
  • NZ Citizen Certificate
  • NZ Refugee Travel Document
  • NZ Emergency Travel Document
  • NZ Certificate of Identity

*The Children’s Regulations 2015 states that a NZ Birth Certificate may only be used as a Primary identity document if issued on or after the 1st of January 1998 and carrying a unique identification number. NZPVS R&C Form User Guide (July 2023) Page | 7

Secondary IDs include:

  • NZ Drivers Licence
  • 18+ Card
  • NZ Full Birth Certificate (issued before 1998)
