The first day of school is right around the corner, and that typically means a busy time at the Barrie Police records department.
With co-op placements and volunteerism a regular part of many students’ school year, the Service gets slammed for background check requests. That’s why Manager of Records and Information Services Nicole Lees recommends doing the whole thing online, and save yourself some aggrivation. She adds, you can save some stress too, as going into a police station could be nerve-racking. “It can be intimidating to come into a police station for a lot of people, so being able to do it from the comfort of their home is a nice perk for them.”
Lees adds you may have to go into the station however, should you be able to save some money. “For students, it’s $32 with proof of enrollment. For voluneer applications, the online fee is $12, but if they do want to come in and apply in person, and they’ve got a letter from the organization, then it’s free of charge.” An employment record check will set you back $52.
Visit the Barrie Police website to fill out that application, or to find out more information on filling out the form in person.
