Red Deer RCMP continue to offer online criminal record checks

Red Deer residents will still be able to get their criminal record checks online.

Earlier this week, the Alberta RCMP announced it was cancelling the provincial pilot program that offered the online checks. Red Deer RCMP will continue to offer online checks as the detachment uses a separate, independently created system.

The City of Red Deer and Red Deer RCMP launched their online record check portal in December 2020 in response to the COVID-19 restrictions.

The Red Deer RCMP detachment processed nearly 7,000 record checks last year and more than three quarters of all applications were submitted online. Completing the online form takes only minutes and allows you to track the progress of your application.

Online criminal record checks are available on the City website at www.reddeer.ca/check.
