The Ontario Provincial Police is moving record checks online starting next week.
It will apply to criminal record checks, criminal record and judicial matters checks, vulnerable sector checks and OPP non-parent custody checks.
Payment will be collected as part of the online application. The document will then be made available through a secure link.
Deputy Commissioner Chris Harkins of field operations said in the release that on average, the OPP completes 140,000 record checks every year.
Harkins said the new system will “significantly streamline” the application process.
