Dear Elizabeth 
Your request for access to documents under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 
(the Act), was received at this office on 14 July 2020. 
I have interpreted your request to be for: 
‘…Victoria Police policy as to what criminal records are unacceptable for employment 
with Victoria Police.’ 
The request will be processed on the basis of the above interpretation. If you 
disagree with this interpretation, please contact our office as soon as possible. 
Fee and ID required 
Your attention is drawn to section 17(2A) of the Act which requires that a request 
must be accompanied by a fee of $29.60. 
Before any further action is taken, I require payment either by cheque or money order 
made payable to the Freedom of Information Office, Victoria Police, together with 
documentary proof of your identity e.g. driver licence or a passport. 
On receipt of the above fee (which is not refundable) and your proof of ID, your 
request will be considered in accordance with the provisions of the Act. If any issues 
arise in relation to the handling of your request, you will be contacted as soon as 
Payment of the statutory application fee is required within 28 days of receiving this 
letter. If I have not received your reply before 11 August 2020, I will consider that the 
documents are no longer required and your request will be finalised. 
Should you proceed with your application, at the completion of enquiries I will forward 
a written response to your request advising of all documents located and those to be 
released as well as any applicable access charges.  
Please note: access charges are separate from the statutory application fee. 
Pursuant to section 22 of the Act, and in conjunction with the provisions of the 
Freedom of Information (Access Charges) Regulations 2014, an agency is entitled to 
seek charges for reasonable costs incurred for searching and producing copies of 
Page 1 of 2 

Charges are calculated at $22.20 per hour or part thereof of search time and $0.20 
per page for black and white photocopies. (Further charges may apply where colour 
copies or other media such as CDs or DVDs are requested). 
Please also be advised that future communications with this office should include our 
file reference number 71447/20. 
Yours sincerely
