See also Immigration New Zealand's general requirements for obtaining a police certificate.
Go to the police certificates page on the Association of Chief Police Officers website. The instructions for applying for the certificate are on the form.
Police certificates from the Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland (ACPO) also cover Scotland. All citizens and residents of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (including those resident in Scotland) should apply through ACPO.
Note: if your police certificate states 'No Live Trace' this means that you have convictions that have been 'stepped down'. These convictions still form part of your criminal history and should be declared in any application you make to Immigration New Zealand.Note: As of 1 October 2009, the blue 'Subject Access Request' certificate issued under the Data Protection Act will not be acceptable.
