New Police Record Check Process—Changes For the Public
The Winnipeg Police Service is adopting a new Police Records Check process.  The changes will mean that for many people, they don't have to attend to Headquarters to initiate the process.

However, it means that all agencies or organizations that require applicants to undergo this process must be registered on the new system in order for the person to apply.  Once the organization is registered, and the applicant completes the online form, the results will be sent electronically to the applicant, who in turn will forward it to the agency.  In the past, applicants would have to pick up the record check themselves, and forward the certificate to the agency.

This means that many applicants will never have to attend to a police station unless the application requires something further, like fingerprints.  In the past, applicants had to come in and pick up their record check to have their ID verified.

The new system is more User friendly.  However, it will only be successful if agencies register online.  To avoid long line ups and delays, we encourage your organization or agency to register, as it ensures that applicants will obtain the proper record check while reducing the time it takes to complete the process.

There are some restrictions.  Anyone who is under 18, has not been residing in the country for a year, has no credit, or lives outside Winnipeg will not be able to apply online.

For Walk-In Police Record Checks, the process is now centralized.  All in-person applications must now be submitted to HQ at 245 Smith.  The hours to do so are Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Online Police Information Check Applications and Agency Registrations can be completed here:
