Secondly, we must have a completed Criminal Records Check on all of our volunteers.

If you are a Windsor resident, please follow these steps:

Visit the Windsor Police Service Website (www.police.windsor.on.ca). Go to Services à Information Requests à Record Check à Police Criminal Record Check.  Print out the application form, fill it out and bring it the Windsor Police Service building along will 2 pieces of photo identification.  There will be no cost to you.  They will let you know when it is complete.  Once you receive your Criminal Records Check, please provide me with a copy.  If nothing is found on your Criminal Records Check, we will contact you regarding future volunteer work.

OR

If you wish to obtain a records check online and have it mailed to you instead of going to the police station to get it done, click on the ‘Police Record Checks – Now Available online’ icon à Register For Your Police Background Check (and follow the instructions). This process allows you to apply for a record check 24 hrs/ day without having to attend the facility. All aspects (verification of ID, fee payment, etc.) are handled electronically. There is $9.95 authentication fee added to the records check fee if you wish to obtain the records check online. If there are no concerns or follow-up required, police record documents will be mailed to you in a confidential envelope.

It may take up to two weeks to process a records check.

If you are not a Windsor resident, please follow these steps:

Please visit your local Police Service in order to obtain a Criminal Records Check.  Please make sure that you tell them it is for volunteer work for Crime Stoppers. There may be a cost involved in getting this check completed.  Once you receive your Criminal Records Check, please provide me with a copy.  If nothing is found on your Criminal Records Check, we will contact you regarding future volunteer work.

Lastly, we want to ensure that all of our volunteers know how the program actually works. There may be times when you are at an event where someone asks you something about the program and we want you to be able to accurately answer their questions.
