White Butte RCMP piloting online criminal record checks for residents of communities in their detachment area: Saskatchewan

White Butte, Saskatchewan – Online criminal record checks are now available to residents of communities served by the White Butte RCMP. In an effort to provide a simpler, more efficient public service, Alberta RCMP launched a pilot last week to test the tool in 12 communities across their province. The pilot was extended across the border to include one Saskatchewan RCMP detachment as well.

Many employers and volunteer organizations require a record check of some kind. The most common are criminal record checks or Vulnerable Sector Checks (VSC). A criminal record check is obtained to determine if a person has been charged or convicted of a crime. A VSC is a police information check that is done to protect children and other vulnerable people from physical, sexual, mental, and financial abuse. A VSC is the most thorough of all background checks available. Vulnerable sector checks are often required for people working or volunteering with vulnerable persons i.e. children, medical patients, the elderly. Be sure to discuss with your employer or volunteer organization which one you need. Both criminal record check and VSC applications are available with this online tool.

The turnaround time for online criminal record checks is anticipated to be between seven and 14 days and will be mailed to the applicant.
