In an effort to make things more convenient for EZT residents, the Township Office in Hickson is able to assist individuals who require a Criminal Record Check, Vulnerable Screening or Pardon Sexual Offence Check. We will assist you to complete the paperwork at the office however, processing will take place at the OPP detachment in Ingersoll. OPP Officers are in our office once a week to pick up applications and drop off completed checks.
