FROM/DE: Essex County Detachment DATE: September 9, 2020
(ESSEX CTY, ON) - The Essex County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding the public of a new, streamlined process for anyone requesting criminal record checks.
As announced in July, anyone requesting a criminal record check within an OPP jurisdiction will have to complete and submit their application online at www.opp.ca/crc.
Details to Consider:
- Payment by credit card is required
- OPP will no longer be accepting criminal record check applications at their detachment locations
- The OPP can only accept and process criminal record checks for applicants that reside within OPP jurisdictions
- Applicants can only apply for criminal record checks with the police service in the jurisdiction where they reside
If you have questions in regards to the process or completing the application form, please contact the OPP specialists at OPP.Police.Record.Check@opp.ca.
