Submitting a Police Information Check

Where to go

Online

Submit your police information check application from the comfort of your own home. Click here to start the online application process.

The Police Information Check Section recognizes the importance of receiving a Police Information Check in a timely and convenient manner and recommends that applicants apply online as it the fastest and most convenient method. Application can be made from the comfort of your home and results are available electronically.

Please refer to the Online Application Frequently Asked Questions for answers to the most common issues. If your question is not answered in the Online Application Frequently Asked Questions, please email policeinformationcheck@edmontonpolice.ca

Please do not attend Police Headquarters or any divisional police station if you experience issues with the online application process, need to have your ID verified or if you have any questions about your Police Information Check.

If you absolutely cannot apply online, you may apply in person at our office only. View our fees here

You will then receive the results of your completed police information check in the mail. Please note, there is no ‘on-the-spot’ processing service. PIC applications will not be accepted at Divisional Stations.
