Continuous monitoring

The Screening Unit will be moving to a continuous monitoring system in mid 2017.

The new system will enable ongoing monitoring of an applicant's relevant history information.  By linking the  Screening Unit with the South Australian Police and other databases, this streamlined system will enable automatic searches for information about any offences that are relevant to an applicant's clearance status.

This will help to identify people who have received a screening clearance to work with children and/or other vulnerable people, but who later commit an offence or offences.

Currently, screening clearances are updated every three years, and only provide a snapshot of a person's record at the time of screening at a 'point in time'.  With the new system, an individual's clearance will be able to be withdrawn if appropriate.
