Fingerprint on Door

Please be advised that our Fingerprinting office is still open in light of the Ontario Governments COVID-19 stay at home order. You are still required to attend at your scheduled appointment time. Should you have an illness preventing you from attending your scheduled appointment and wish to re-schedule or have any other inquiry, please call 905-453-3311 ext. 4840 to speak to a Fingerprint Technician.

Anyone charged with a criminal offence must go to 22 Division on the date noted on their release forms. They are required to bring their release forms and identification (i.e., driver's license, passport etc.) to 22 Division to have their fingerprints and photographs taken.

All fingerprints and photographs are permanently retained on the police computer system. Upon conviction, fingerprints will only be removed if the individual obtains a record suspension (pardon) from the government. If there is no conviction, for example where the case is withdrawn or resulted in a not guilty verdict, the individual must write a letter to Records Services - Court and Criminal Records to have the fingerprints destroyed. The Youth Criminal Justice Act is clear on the retention and disclosure of youth records, therefore an application for the destruction of fingerprints, photographs and records of disposition for young persons will not be accepted. The applicant must be an adult 18 years of age or older at the date of arrest.

Send the letter to:
Peel Regional Police
Records Services - Court and Criminal Records
7150 Mississauga Road
Mississauga, ON L5N 8M5

Peel Regional Police no longer offers fingerprinting for non-criminal matters. Some local RCMP agencies still offer these services.
