How does Doc Assist do applications for police clearance certificates?

Because the team at Doc Assist has been making applications for police clearance certificates for a long time, they have formed important relationships with those they deal with on a daily basis, such as the Criminal Record Centre in Pretoria.

Doc Assist submits applications for police clearance certificates on a daily basis, making them a familiar presence at the CRC, which means that they know exactly who to contact, to make sure that your application has been added to the SAPS database.

It’s unfortunate, but with the pressure put on an understaffed SAPS, when applications are made at police stations, it is possible for applications to go missing, especially due to the backlog at the CRC, as well as how long it will take for the police station to send your application to the CRC.
