Police Information Check Section - Closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Police Information Check Section recognizes the importance of receiving a Police Information Check in a timely and convenient manner and is pleased to offer “On the Spot” service at no extra charge at its Nexus location for applicants immediately requiring a Police Information Check.

Note: “On the Spot” service is dependent on the applicant having no existing criminal record, no upcoming court, and no police files in any jurisdiction requiring a review.

Applicants submitting an application at a police station and require the results of a Police Information Check (that does not contain any information to disclose) to be sent directly to their employer, must also complete and submit a Third Party Consent form. This form must be signed in the presence of a member of the Edmonton Police Service.

Identification Required

Two pieces of identification must be produced. One piece of identification must be a valid government issued identification containing a photo. Examples include:

  • Driver’s Licence or Identification Card
  • Passport
  • Nexus Card
  • Permanent Residence Card
  • Indian/Metis Status Card

The second piece of identification can be any identification that includes your full name. The Police Information Check Section reserves the right to accept or refuse any forms of identification. Expired identification cannot be accepted.

Proof of residency is required for applicants requiring a Vulnerable Sector Police Information Check.  Documentation must be provided verifying a current address and can include a driver’s licence, a recent utility, electricity, gas or telephone bill, bank statement, property rental agreement, insurance policy documents, etc. dated within the last 90 days.
