Non Parent Custody

The Ottawa Police Service no longer offers Form 325 for Non Parent Custody requests.

Non Parent Custody requests are now submitted using the Ottawa Police Services fingerprinting service.

This fingerprinting service uses the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS) to conduct a query of the RCMP database for offenders who have been convicted of an offence that is sexual in nature where a Record Suspension has been granted.

Any applicable disclosure is also provided once results have been returned to the Ottawa Police Service by the RCMP.


$51 (fingerprint submission).

Accepted methods of payment are: Cash, Debit, Certified Cheque, Money Order, Visa, MasterCard, or Amex.

How long does my Non Parent Custody application take to be completed?

  • Fingerprint results are typically received from the RCMP to Ottawa Police Service within two (2) business days.
  • Although the Ottawa Police Service submits the fingerprints to the RCMP immediately after they have been taken, delays do exist and are out of the Ottawa Police Services control.
  • Once the fingerprint results have been received from the RCMP, the Background Clearance Section will notify you that your Non Parent Custody application has been completed.
