Welcome to the online portal for police record checks offered by the Guelph Police Service (GPS). GPS offers the ability to apply online for three types of police record checks. Please refer to our FAQ for details regarding the three types of police record checks. If you are not sure what level is required, contact the agency requesting the police record check for clarification, as record checks are NON-REFUNDABLE. We accept online applications for employment, student placements, adoption and volunteer opportunities. We do not offer expedited checks for any reason.
To apply for an online police record check you must currently be a resident of Guelph. Temporary residents of Guelph can apply with proof of Guelph residency (i.e. lease agreement). Please note that applications will be voided for applicants residing outside of Guelph. All applications are non-refundable. If you are not sure if you reside within the city limits of Guelph, please contact the City of Guelph. Also you can check the following link.
Applicants must be 18 years or older.
Applicants must include the name of the specific organization that has requested that they complete a record check. Record checks cannot be processed without a specific requesting organization, and as such, applicants must not submit an application before being asked to obtain a record check.
Please note: for Level 3 police checks, if the RCMP requires fingerprints, applicants must attend to the Guelph Police Service station to be fingerprinted in order for the police record check to be completed. Please refer to our FAQ for more details.
