What is a Calgary Police Check?

Normally, a Calgary Police Check is a criminal record check completed through your local Calgary Police. The results reveal one of the following:

  • There is no criminal record associated with your name and date of birth (not verified by fingerprints).
  • There may be a criminal record associated with your name and date of birth (but fingerprints must be taken to determine if this criminal record belongs to you).
  • A report identifying conviction(s) missing from the national RCMP criminal record database and other incidences involving the police that did not result in a conviction for inclusion in a Pardon Application (now called Record Suspension Application). This can only be one after your criminal record has already been order with the use of fingerprints.

However, effective May 1, 2010, the Calgary Police stopped providing services to the general public (civil sector). The following is indicated on their website:

Where do I go for fingerprinting?

  • Effective May 1, 2010 the Calgary Police Service no longer provides non-criminal fingerprinting services for all civil matters such as immigration, name changes, international adoptions and pardons. There are several private companies in Calgary that provide this service.
