KAWARTHA LAKES: Starting on Monday, February 3rd, the Kawartha Lakes Police Service (KLPS) will launch online record checks. You can complete a police screening check from the comfort of your home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There’s no longer a need for you to take time off work, drive to the police station, and wait in the lobby. Starting February 3rd, the KLPS website, www.kawarthalakespolice.com, will provide information about all three levels of police record checks, available to residents. Police encourage those applying to read the options carefully to make the correct choice. Those applying can also speak to the agency requesting the record check and let them help you determine which police check, is most appropriate for the position to which you are applying.
Police add that payment is handled through a secure online processor, similar to any other website on the internet. After February 3rd, the website will include online authentication which is necessary as police services will not release information unless they have confirmed your identity. Applicants will be asked a series of questions regarding your banking and credit history, the answers to which only you will know. They do not share your credit file with the police; it’s merely a process to authenticate your identity.
Once your identity has been confirmed, the process will continue. When police receive the information,
staff will review it, conduct the record checks, prepare, certify and email your documents back to you; simple and convenient.
