Police Clearance Could Give You the Edge Over Another Sitter

Having police clearance could give you the edge over another sitter. It could mean the difference of winning or losing a sit. It doesn’t cost that much and the value of this peace of mind far outweighs the cost. It is strongly advised to have current National Police Clearance documentation in Australia or a DBS ( i.e. Disclosure Barring Service) check in the UK.

Just think if you were going to have someone live in your home while you were away, wouldn’t you like to have the added security that comes with the knowledge that the sitter/s have police clearance status. Keep it upper most in your mind that a police clearance could give you the edge over another sitter.
