Police Certificate

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

My fiance lived in Canada (Toronto) for a while and so we need to obtain a police record for him there. We have already sent out the application with a set of fingerprints taken at a local police department in Grenada. (we followed the directions on the RMPF site)

How long should I expect a record check to take. I saw somewhere to expect 4 months! is there anyway this can be wrong, or is there anyway it could be sped up?

I also want to know what will show up on it. Do they list all arrests as well as convictions?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know what shows up on a police check that does not come back clean, however yes, it can reportedly take about 4 months AND just want to be sure that you know that you only need fingerpriting if you have a criminal record.

ugh!

are you serious?

We searched and searched the website and it says all of them needed to be fingerprint checks. My fiance has no convictions but was arrested, with charges dropped. I hope we haven't opened up a can of worms.

do you know if one type of check takes longer than the other? should we try and get a name check done also?

If he's getting fingerprints checked by the RCMP I don't think he needs a name check since fingerprints are more accurate than a name check. I just looked at the RCMP website and they don't perform just a name check directly for people that aren't resident here (which is why us Canadians go to 3rd parties like The Commissionaires for just a name check). Not sure where you'd be able to get a name check done without being here in Canada. Name checks generally can be done either on the spot at an RCMP detachment or 5 days through another service (mine took 5 days).

I don't know how long it takes for fingerprinting but you may want to contact the RCMP directly to ask them.

Q: How can I verify the status of my application?

A: Contact us by e-mail civilnps@rcmp-grc.gc.ca and provide the following information:

* Your full name and date of birth

* The date and the reason you sent the application

* Whether the processing fee was included (if applicable)

Hi all!

My fiance lived in Canada (Toronto) for a while

When you say 'a while' ... are you talking more than 6 months here? Because he only has to get a check if he has lived someplace for more than 6 months. (somebody correct me if I am wrong please)

Thanks for all the responses.

As my fiance lives in Grenada, that mustbe why I could ony find information on the fingerprint form, Can't just go down to the station and get a name check done.

He lived in Canada long enough to require a police certificate from that country.

Now all I have to do is sit and wait for the blasted thing to come in the mail, I really hope they let Vermont rub off on them and send it back quick quick quick!

Thanks again,

Sue

Yeah.. name checks are only available in Canada... so he can either travel up to Canada for a name check or wait it out in Grenada...
