Red Deer RCMP continue to offer Online Criminal Record Checks

Red Deerians will still be able to complete criminal record and vulnerable sector checks online, despite cancellation of the provincial pilot program.

This week, the Alberta RCMP announced that they would end their pilot online criminal record check program, but Red Deer RCMP will continue to offer online checks as the detachment uses a separate, independently created system.

The City of Red Deer and Red Deer RCMP launched their online record check portal in December 2020 in response to the COVID-19 restrictions. Volunteers, new employees and others requiring a criminal record or vulnerable sector check can apply and pay online quickly, easily and securely.

The Red Deer RCMP detachment processed nearly 7,000 record checks last year and more than three quarters of all applications were submitted online. Completing the online form takes only minutes and allows you to track the progress of your application.

Online criminal record checks are available on the City website at www.reddeer.ca/check.
