Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check

This check is intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with agencies who require a Criminal Record Check along with outstanding charges and outstanding warrants. The agency has determined that a search of sex offenders with a record suspension is NOT required (e.g., border crossing or visa) therefore this check is NOT intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with vulnerable persons.
