Police Checks

Understanding the use of police vulnerable sector record checks in your volunteer screening process is important. During COVID-19, organizations and volunteers have found it challenging to obtain these record checks.

After speaking with Peel Regional Police on June 15, 2020, I received this update on the process of obtaining a record checks and the organization's ability to verify it. 

  1. Peel Region Police will not disclose any details of the search results over the phone.
  2. A Vulnerable Sector Check should ideally be exclusive to the position.
  3. Access to past records are only within the past 3 months.
  4. If a SPO does decide to accept a past Vulnerable Sector Record Check, the volunteer can obtain a copy of it by paying a $5.00 fee.
  5. They are working on an online approach to streamline things but, it is still not in place.

We'll keep tabs on this matter and let you know of anything further.
