Front Counter Services
Due to the current pandemic crisis, Front Counter services to the public have been modified.
As always, please call 911 for any emergency situations.
Our non-emergency and detachment phone number is 604-826-7161.
On-line Reporting is available for certain reports; see further information on this web site.
Calling our non-emergency line is still the best way to initiate a file or speak to a member to discuss any problems or concerns. Our lobby is closed and some Front Counter services are unavailable; call before attending.
If you must attend the Mission Detachment in person - and have a cell phone - you will need to call the detachment non-emergency number when you arrive. Front Counter staff will assist you during our regular posted office hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays; we are closed on Statutory holidays.
Outside of the posted Front Counter hours - or if you do not have a cell phone - use the phone located in the metal call box on the outside wall for assistance by our non-emergency Dispatch operators.
Fingerprinting and Police Information Checks (Criminal Record Checks)
No vulnerable sector or civil fingerprints can be done but we may be able to direct you to an alternate location.
We are unable to process Police Information Checks for volunteers.
For employment or tenancy Police Information Checks, call Front Counter staff during our regular office hours for information on how we can assist you.
All applicants must attend in person.
The Mission RCMP front counter is open Monday to Friday 08:00 - 17:00, Saturday and Sunday 10:00 - 14:00 and closed on all statutory holidays. All applicants for services must attend the detachment 15 minutes prior to closing to allow time to intake Police Information Checks and other forms. Payment for services include debit and cash only. (We are unable to accept $100 bills for services that total less than $100.)
Below are some of the services offered at the front counter; please call 604-826-7161, Monday - Friday, 08:00-16:45 for more detailed instructions and information.
Police Information Checks (Criminal Record Checks)
Applicants must live in Mission and provide two pieces of government-issued identification; one piece must include a photo and current address. The fee for this service is $65 for employment purposes and landlord/tenant checks up to a maximum $130 per household; all members of the household must provide identification with the same address and attend within a two-week period to receive the discount. Student record checks are $25 with proof of enrolment in a school-based practicum. There is no charge for most volunteer positions but some restrictions do apply; please call for clarification. Volunteer applicants must provide a volunteer status letter.
The completed Police Information Check must be picked up by the applicant with the presentation of one piece of photo identification. Please allow 1-2 weeks for processing.
Request a copy of the Police Information Check form. (Simply hit send on the email, and you will receive a reply with the file within 1 minute.)
Applicants can reside in Mission or Abbotsford but must not have a criminal record; please provide two pieces of government-issues identification. This certificate is for Visa applications, foreign travel, and foreign work permits; it will be issued after a search of the National Repository for Criminal Records in Canada. (The criminal check is not verified by fingerprints.) The fee for this service is $65 and will be provided while you wait. It takes approximately 15 - 20 minutes.
Taxi / Chauffeur / Ride Share Permits
As per the new Passenger Transportation Act and Regulation Provincial Requirements - effective 2019-09-16 - municipal permits are no longer issued. Applicants still require a Police Information Check with the Vulnerable Sector query and must attend the police detachment where they live. Please see the 'Police Information Checks' section above for information on obtaining a Police Information Check at the Mission RCMP Detachment.
Appointment is required; please call during front counter hours.
Applicants must live in Mission. The fee for this service is $65, plus $25 for the Ottawa processing fee, if applicable. There are a variety of reasons for having fingerprints taken. These include:
- Employment Requirement
- Security Licence Application
- U.S. Waiver
- Name Change
- Record Suspension (Pardon)
- Obtaining a Certified Criminal Record
The U.S. Waiver package is available at the U.S. border crossings for individuals who have a criminal record and wish to apply to enter or work in the United States. The applicant is fingerprinted by his/her local police detachment, and the results will be sent to their home, or to a designated representative (i.e. companies doing their forms/applications).
All fingerprints are taken digitally, but if rolled paper prints are required (by employer, etc.), these can be supplied at a cost of $65. These prints will be given to the individual after they are produced.
