The South Simcoe Police Service offers the ability to submit Police Record Checks online to those who are eligible. You may be eligible to submit online if you have a bank account and credit history through which we can verify your identity. You will also need a credit card, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Debit in order to pay online and must currently reside in Innisfil or Bradford West Gwillimbury. Depending on the type of police check and your status as an employee or volunteer, you will also need a letter specifically requesting that you undergo a Police Record check.
|Accepted Photo Identification (one of your two pieces of identification must be from this list):||Accepted Non-Photo Identification (must provide name and date of birth)|
You may apply online as long as you have a bank account, credit history and the ability to pay online. We use Equifax to verify your identity. If you are unsuccessful in your Electronic Identity Verification (EIV), you may still complete your application online, however you will still need to come in person and have your identification verified (see below). As a volunteer, you will need an electronic, scanned or .pdf copy of the organization’s capacity letter to attach to your application.
If you are not able to submit electronically, you will need to apply in-person at 2137 Innisfil Beach Road, Innisfil or 81 Melbourne Drive, Bradford West Gwillimbury. You will need to bring two (2) pieces of valid government-issued identification that confirms your name, date of birth and address, a current email and physical address through which your results will be sent. One piece of identification must have a photo.
No, Vulnerable Sector screening checks are only valid for the specific employer/position for which it was conducted due to the potential Ministerial disclosure, and are not likely to be accepted by another Vulnerable Sector employer.
To submit an application online, and in order to use the Electronic Identification Verification process, you are required to have a bank account and credit history. This is NOT a credit check.
Applicants whose identity cannot be verified electronically will be required to submit an application in person at 2137 Innisfil Beach Road, Innisfil or 81 Melbourne Drive, Bradford West Gwillimbury.
If you are unsuccessful the FIRST time, you can try a second time.
Following that, if you are still unsuccessful in your online Electronic Identity Verification check, you can visit us in person.
Before you get started online, you will need:
- A computer with an internet browser and an email address
- A bank account and credit history to complete the online Electronic Identity Verification process
The SSPS uses Equifax, which uses your credit information to confirm your identity. To learn more about Equifax, please visit their website. If you are unsuccessful in your online Electronic Identity Verification check, you may still apply in person.
An electronic copy of your volunteer capacity letter (this may be scanned or attached as a .pdf)
If you are a volunteer, you will be asked to attach a scanned or .pdf version of your volunteer letter. It must clearly indicate the organization that you will be volunteering with, on organization letterhead and signed by the volunteer organization. Illegible or incomplete letters will be rejected and you will be notified that you must reapply.
Results stemming from Record Check applications will be returned to you either via Email (Softcopy) or Paper (Hardcopy).

There are three (3) types of Police Record checks. These include a (1) Criminal Record Check (CR), a (2) Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check (CRJM), and (3) a Vulnerable Sector Check (VS). Which form you fill out depends on the organization requesting the Police Record Check, your status as an employee or a volunteer, and if you are working directly with vulnerable persons.
