Residents in need of a police information check will now be able to apply for one at any time, thanks to the DPD’s new online application.
Police information checks are often required for those who are interested in coaching, volunteering with children, or working with vulnerable populations. Others may need a police information check as part of a condition of employment or a work contract.
In all cases, residents can visit policesolutions.ca/checks/services/delta/index.php to start the process. Applying takes between 10 and 25 minutes, and private information is kept on a secure server.
Those intending to apply online should have lived in Canada for more than one year, be over 21, and have an established personal credit history, as these will allow the police department to provide online identity authentication.
Anyone who does not meet these requirements is still able to apply for a police information check at the DPD’s headquarters in Ladner or the North Delta Public Safety Building.
A completed application will be processed and the results mailed within four weeks. For more information, visit deltapolice.ca/community-services/police-information-check/.
