Police Information Checks may be required for employment, volunteer, or education purposes. The applicant must attend the main detachment in person and provide two pieces of accepted identification (ID) and proof of Burnaby residency.
There is a $60.00 administration fee which is payable by cash, visa, MasterCard, debit card, or money order (made out to the City of Burnaby) and must be paid in full before the application will be processed. Criminal record checks for volunteers must be accompanied by an official letter from the requesting agency in order to have the $60.00 fee waived. Only one volunteer application per calendar year will be processed for free and any subsequent applications will be subject to a $10.00 processing fee. Be advised that if Vulnerable Sector prints are required there is an additional $25 fee which is payable by cash, Visa, MasterCard, or money order (made out to the City of Burnaby).
