Record Suspensions – (Previously called Pardons)

What is a Record Suspension?

A Record Suspension, or Pardon as it was previously called, allows people convicted of a criminal offence to have their criminal record kept separate and apart from other criminal records.

It removes a person's criminal record from the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database. This means that a search of CPIC will not show that the individual has a criminal record or a record suspension. This helps them access employment and educational opportunities and to reintegrate into society.

For information on waiting periods, eligibility criteria and how to apply for a record suspension see the Record Suspension Guide on the Parole Board of Canada website.

Peel Regional Police will only provide the applicant with the results of the local Police Record Check.

Release Programs

Shop Theft Release Program

This program was developed to deal with first time shop theft offenders.

Program benefits:

  • Decreased officer response time to shop theft calls.
  • Reduced down time for retail Loss Prevention Investigators (LPI), also known as Security Guards.
  • Increased efficiency in processing of offenders.
  • Improved consistency in how offenders are dealt with.
  • Prevention of random detention of offenders.

Once the assessment is complete the offender may be released by the LPI that arrested them.

Pre-Charge Diversion Referral Program

This program allows for a young person who has been arrested the opportunity to accept responsibility for their actions, and to agree to participate in an educational program in lieu of a criminal charge.

When determining the involvement of this program, the officer must consider:

  • Whether the youth has been charged before.
  • Whether the offence is non-violent and minor in nature.
  • If this type of outcome will hold the youth accountable for their actions.
  • If the youths parent or guardian has been notified and agree for the youth to be involved in the program.

After being recommended for the Pre-Charge Diversion Referral Program, an approved community agency will consider the recommendation and rule if it's appropriate or not.
