The Oxford County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding all residents that they need to bring specific items in order to have a vulnerable sector check completed.
For a Vulnerable Criminal Record Check to be completed, everyone MUST have a letter from the organization requesting the check. It must be on letterhead and have a signature on the bottom. It will not be accepted if it only has a check list, or email.It must be a letter that contains what kind of record check is required, and if it is for volunteer or for employment.
If it is for employment there is a $25 dollar fee. If it is a volunteer check, there is no fee, but it does require a letter stating that it is for volunteering.If you are a college or university student requiring a check for school or placement there is a $25 fee for them even though the letter may indicate that it is an unpaid position.
All residents need to provide two (2) pieces of identification - one needs to be photo ID.
A drivers licence and birth certificate are preferred however other pieces most commonly used are passport, outdoor card, Firearms Acquisition Certificate and blood donor card. Residents can also use a Canadian citizenship card, Residency Card, status card, baptismal certificate, immigration documents or Ontario photo identification card.
After providing a letter along with payment and identification, residents are informed that there is a two (2) to four (4) week waiting period before they can return to pick up their completed check.
Following the above guidelines will ensure that your request is processed in a timely manner.
