CRIMINAL RECORD CHECKS NOW ONLINE

Friday, 25 September 2020

(Perth, ON) – With the start of school and people returning to work, the Lanark County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) along with other detachments province-wide, have been inundated with requests for criminal record checks. 

In the past, if you required a criminal record check to be done you attended the local detachment, dropped off paperwork and returned on a later date to pick-up the completed form. 

Everything changed, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In order to keep staff and the public safe, the OPP have switched completely to online record check submissions.  The only time a person needs to attend the detachment is if requiring fingerprints for a vulnerable sector check.

Many people continue to attend the detachment which is not required and due to the pandemic, discouraged for purposes of criminal record checks.

Due to the high number of applications there is a 4-6 week processing time so if you think you may need a check for volunteering, please go online early.

All information on how to complete an application online is available at the OPP website: www.opp.ca.  Follow the link for “criminal record checks” on the home page to learn more.  Fees for non-volunteer record checks which used to be paid for in cash only now are to be paid by credit card.
