Level 2 - Criminal Record & Judicial Matters Check

Contact

It is a collection of offence information, including convictions, outstanding warrants, charges and judicial orders available from a local police agency's Record management system and other systems/Record where authorized.

This check is intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with agencies who require a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check. The agency has determined that a search of sex offenders with a record suspension is NOT required (e.g., border crossing or visa) therefore this check is NOT intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with vulnerable persons.

Please Note:

Volunteers may possess a letter from the volunteer organization on official company letterhead stating that you are seeking a Record Check for the purposes of volunteering at the time of submission.

This will waive your fee for our regular service, but same-day fees are still applicable.

The Ottawa Police does not offer Fingerprinting Services for this type of Record Check.

If you require a list of your convictions, you will be advised to attend a private fingerprinting agency.
