Fingerprint on Door

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 If there is no conviction, for example where the case is withdrawn or resulted in a not guilty verdict, the individual must write a letter to the Office of the Chief to have the fingerprints destroyed . The fingerprints of Young Offenders will be removed at the age of 18.

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