About CrimeNet

Launched in May 2000, CrimeNet has been the leading provider of Australian criminal records for over twenty years. CrimeNet supplies a comprehensive database of criminal records, professional misconduct findings, and court appearances.

In the two decades we've been operating, CrimeNet has built up a database of millions of Australian records, ranging from fraud, to paedophilia, to murder. New records are added daily by our team of dedicated researchers.

Thousands of corporations, small businesses, legal firms, banks, airlines, employment agencies and individuals throughout the world regularly use our services. CrimeNet's database can be used for background checks, employment screening, executive dilligence, candidate vetting, and compliance risk management.

To access CrimeNet's database, you need to open an account. Once you've created an account and logged in, you'll be able to conduct preliminary searches for free. To view full records, you'll need to purchase credits or maintain an active subscription. Unlike our competitors, CrimeNet doesn't require lengthy waiting periods or onerous information to conduct a search. Results are returned immediately, we never notify the target of an enquiry, and all you need to get started is an account and a name to search.

If you are not sure of the full name of the person to be searched, you can enter just the surname or a few letters of either name. This type of search will usually result in a list of names. After a list of names is returned you can choose whether to proceed to purchasing access to a full record.



CrimeNet has been in operation for over two decades, and we constantly update our database. We currently index over 3,000,000 records, and our database is growing every day. Unlike competitors, our criminal records are meticulously verified by a team of researchers, ensuring our database contains only the highest quality information.

You can trust us when it comes to protecting your business. Search our database as part of your employee screening process, and reduce the risk of fraud and compliance issues.




Unlike other background check providers, we don't require any form filling or 48 hour waiting periods, and we don't notify the target of a search. When you use our database, you'll get the result instantly, and privately.

Conducting an initial search of our database is free, meaning you only pay for the records you actually view. For higher volume clients, we offer subscription packages to keep costs low.
