Release of Completed Police Record Check

Criminal Records Check (CRC) / Police Information Check (PIC)

The Police Service will provide the results of a completed Criminal Records Check (CRC) or Police Information Check (PIC) only to you, the applicant.

It is your decision to discuss the results of a Criminal Records Check (CRC) or Police Information Check (PIC) with the agency where you want to work or volunteer.

The role of the Police Service is to provide you with the results of the Criminal Records Check (CRC) or Police Information Check (PIC). It is the responsibility of the volunteer or employment agency to determine your suitability for the position.

Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC))

The Police Service will complete a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) based on your name, gender and date of birth, as well as, gender and date of birth. A completed Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) will be provided to you, the applicant.

The role of the Police Service is to provide you with the results of the Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC). It is the responsibility of the volunteer or employment agency to determine your suitability for the position.

Note: If the Vulnerable Sector Scan is inconclusive a fingerprint based search will be required. If the RCMP confirms that you have received a record suspension (pardon) for a sex offence, the information will be forwarded to the Minister of Public Safety to authorize disclosure of all or part of the information contained in your file. When the information is authorized for disclosure by the Minister, the criminal record associated with your fingerprints will be returned to the Police Service and will include the pardoned sexual offence information.

At this point the Police Service will be required to obtain your consent in writing for disclosure of the record(s). When you have signed the form giving consent to release the record(s) the Police Service must forward the information to the requesting agency (employer or volunteer agency). If you do not consent to the release of the information, the Police Service will advise the requesting agency (employment or volunteer) they are unable to complete the vulnerable sector record check.
