Front Counter Services

Table of Contents


The Burnaby RCMP front counter is staffed by the City of Burnaby municipal employees. While our staff members speak many languages, please be aware that services in languages other than English are not always available immediately.

Anyone in Burnaby can report a crime by attending the main detachment in person or by calling the non-emergency line at 604-646-9999.

Some services, such as Canadian Police Certificates and Certified Criminal Record Checks, fingerprinting, and Police Information Checks have associated administration and processing fees and require specific types of ID. Please take note of the associated fees, accepted payment methods, and required ID before visiting the detachment or booking an appointment.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Access to Information and Privacy Branch (ATIP) provides formal responses to access to information requests under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act. These requests are not processed at the front counter.
