Welcome To K-PIC
COVID-19 NOTICE (Please Read):
Due to the continuing concerns for safety as a result of the spread of COVID-19 and to safeguard both the safety of members of the Kingston Police and members of the public, the Kingston Police are restricting access to the Kingston Police station and will no longer accept in person applications for Police Checks. Further the Kingston Police will prioritize Police Checks for immediate essential employment. All applications must be made online.
There are 3 types of police checks:
Level 1 - Criminal Record Check - (basic check - search for criminal convictions only) This is not intended for anyone working or volunteering with the vulnerable sector.
Level 2 - Criminal Records & Judicial Matters Check -(searches for criminal convictions, outstanding charges, warrants, judicial orders)
Level 3 - Vulnerable Sector Check (will include criminal record & judicial matters search as well as Vulnerable Sector Search) Intended for those working or volunteering with the vulnerable population.
Applicants MUST upload copies of their identification; all applicants MUST have their identity E-VERIFIED to allow electronic release of results.
Only applicants who have had their identity verified through the E-ID verifier portion of K-PIC, will have results available to them via their personal K-PIC account. Applicants who receive electronic results will have the ability to share those results with agencies on the K-PIC approved agency list. Click here for a list of the registered Agencies.
Only in exceptional circumstances (where the requirement is immediate and for an essential employment purpose), will the Kingston Police waive the above requirements.
If an applicant needs to be fingerprinted to complete a Vulnerable Sector check, the completion of their check will be delayed.
In compelling circumstances, where an applicant cannot apply on-line special arrangements may be made with Teresa Mayhew at 613-549-4660 extension 2225.
After June 30, 2020 (the current date for the end of the provincial state of emergency), the Kingston Police will re-evaluate resuming this service.
We apologize for this inconvenience.
Effective January 2, 2019, the fee for Police Criminal Records Checks has increased to $35
The Information Services Division of the Kingston Police is very pleased to offer the citizens of Kingston the ability to utilize an automated online system for submitting Police Information Checks.
K-PIC will allow applicants the convenience of applying online to submit their applications 24/7 from any location. There is no paperwork required and applicants can monitor the status of their application, any time, through their own personal account. Applicants have the ability to pay for their application through a secure payment system which accepts Visa & Mastercard.
During the COVID-19 situation, access to the Kingston Police lobby is restricted to 2 people at a time. Some applicants may be required to pick up completed results. Those applicants will have to attend the station Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. & 3:30 p.m. excluding Statutory & Municipal Holidays. Applicants must produce two pieces of valid identification upon attendance.
* Please note: for the purpose of the K-PIC online system the term “Agency” will also include reference to a company or an organization.
