Police Information Checks
Police Information Checks are available and accepted at the Front Counter of the North Cowichan/Duncan detachment – British Columbia (rcmp-grc.gc.ca) and are usually processed within two weeks. There are circumstances where your Police Information Check may take much longer, example, if fingerprints are required and need to be submitted to Ottawa for confirmation, or if we need to contact another police agency for information.
If you are a volunteer for an organization that requires a Police Information Check, the fee will be waived. In order to have this fee waived, you will be required to present a letter from the organization confirming your volunteer status. Please contact us if you need more information.
Two pieces of government issued ID are required, one showing a current North Cowichan / Duncan address.
