Hello, I'm Jack Lemire, Information Manager for the Medicine Hat Police Service. Welcome to our online criminal record check process, where you can complete a police criminal record check from the comfort of your home, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Now there's no need to take time off work, drive to our police station and wait in the lobby.
On our website you'll find information on the Criminal Record Check and Vulnerable Sector checks that are available to you.
We encourage you to read carefully and make the correct choice. You should speak with your employer and let them determine which police check is most appropriate for the position you are applying for.
Payment is handled through a secure online processor, similar to any other website on the internet.
Our website includes online authentication which is necessary as police services will not release information unless your identity has been confirmed. Authentication is performed by our partners, Forrest Green / TransUnion who are licensed consumer credit reporting agencies.
You will be asked a series of questions regarding your banking and credit history, the answers to which only you know. Your credit file is not shared with the police; it is merely a process to authenticate your identity and once your identity has been confirmed, the process will continue.
There is a small convenience fee for this process, but we believe it's preferable than having to come to our station and waiting in our lobby. However that option is still available to you if you wish.
Once we receive the information, our staff will review it, conduct the appropriate background checks, prepare, certify and mail your documents; simple and convenient.
