Currently, the police department is unable to offer fingerprinting services due to COVID-19 restrictions. These applications will be noted as being held for fingerprinting and VicPD will inform you directly if your application requires this step.

To use the online Police Information Check service you must have a valid email account, be a Victoria or Esquimalt resident, pass an electric identity check by answering a series of questions online to quickly confirm identity and for volunteer-related checks, have a digital copy of the volunteer letter from the agency or organization that is requesting the check ready to upload.

For more information or to use the system visit vicpd.ca/services/police-information-checks.
