    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if there is a difference between a Victorian National Police Clearance and a AFP ( Australian Federal Police) one?

    If there is a conviction without guilt, will that show on the AFP one?

    It would show on the Victorian one?

    Thanks

    The report will reflect the content about you from all police databases nationwide.
    So you will not be able to conceal convictions in Queensland from, say,
    a prospective employer in Victoria.

    But would it show guilty on the AFP one without conviction?
