Criminal Record Checks

Criminal Records Checks

In support of the current public health mandate of the Province of Ontario, the Brockville Police Service will be expediting police record checks, where it is required, for all essential workers, including health care personnel, social service workers, child care workers, individuals involved in food supply, and those involved in the maintenance of critical infrastructure.

We are currently limiting access to our building and are reminding people that you will have to apply online through our website for a criminal record check. In the event that you feel it is necessary to expedite your check based on the above criteria please submit your request online as per our website procedures  http://brockvillepolice.com/services/criminal-record-checks/  Following this, please email crc@brockvillepolice.com indicating that you have submitted a request and the reason for expediting it.  A member of our staff will either contact you, if further information is required, or email you the results upon completion of the check.

Out of Town Overnight Visitors

Out of Town Overnight Visitors:

Currently there is no legislation that mandates self-isolation.  As such, the Police do not have the ability to order people to do it.  We are working with local business to ask them to assist by not permitting overnight camping and screening people before they enter the store.  We have assigned an officer as a COVD19 Liaison officer who will reach out to businesses and provide some direction.  If they wish us to police their lots at night, we will certainly assist.

There is currently nothing in legislation that allows police to enforce self-isolation.  The area where campers are staying upon their return to Canada is private property.  Police would need to be directed by the owners of that property in order to take any action.

We continue to work with all levels of Government and our local businesses in order to rectify this situation.

  • The Brockville Police will be responding to emergency calls for service, however, measures have been put in place to allow some non-emergency calls to be handled over the telephone. 
  • The Brockville Police Facility will be closed to the general public, however, those who attend can speak with dispatch staff via intercom.
  • Fingerprints will be rescheduled.
  • Persons coming into contact with police may be asked some simple screening questions.

As indicated, these are temporary measures and are subject to change at any time.  We want to thank everyone for their patience at this time.

MedicAlert Connect Protect service will help The Brockville Police Service and The Gananoque Police Service officers reunite lost, wandering, and vulnerable individuals with their families

The Brockville Police Service are partnering with MedicAlert Foundation Canada to better help officers quickly locate lost or missing vulnerable individuals, such as those living with autism, Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive brain injuries, so they can be quickly and safely returned to their loved ones.

MedicAlert Connect Protect gives police officers 24-hour access to a registered subscriber’s photo, identifying information, past wandering history and other medical information through the MedicAlert identification and associated database.

This information will help officers search more efficiently, increasing the chances that those who go missing are reunited with their loved ones sooner. Officers called to an emergency involving a MedicAlert subscriber will have access to vital information which could save a life.

“We are pleased to announce our partnership with MedicAlert.  Quick access to important information will help us to better protect our most vulnerable citizens,” says Staff Sgt. Andrew Harvie.

“As a registered Canadian charity for close to 60 years, MedicAlert has played an important role in helping to protect Canadians and give families peace of mind in wandering or emergency situations,” explained Françoise Faverjon-Fortin, CEO of MedicAlert.  “Our database is a vital link between the community and first responders when faster, informed action makes all the difference and we’re honoured to assist police services across the country.”

MedicAlert will be holding a registration session in Brockville following the launch of MedicAlert Connect Protect. Members of the public are encouraged to learn more and sign up themselves or a loved one. Thanks to Brockville Police Service and MedicAlert Foundation Canada, the first 20 new MedicAlert subscribers will get their first-year service plan and a MedicAlert ID at no cost. 

Date Location Time
March 19th, 2019 St. Lawrence Lodge
1803 County Road 2 East
Brockville Ontario
K6V 5T1
