We strive for same day service, however we cannot guarantee it. In some cases the records check may take additional time to complete.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to know which type of record check is required for their position. 

There are 2 levels of criminal record checks available:

Being in a position of trust or authority is more than just having contact with children or vulnerable persons. To meet the legal requirements for a vulnerable sector check as per the RCMP, the nature of the position must cause the person to have authority over, or trust of, children or vulnerable persons.

We will only provide a PIC for young persons aged 17 and under.

Peel Regional Police will provide the results of a completed Record Check only to you, the applicant.  It is your decision to discuss the results of a Police Record Check with the agency where you want to work or volunteer.  It is also your responsibility to request the appropriate search for your position. The agency is responsible to determine your suitability for the position.

Any police record check not picked up within 3 months will be destroyed. 

Peel Regional Police does not refund any fees.
