Criminal Reference (Police) Check

If you are a resident of the Township of Blandford-Blenheim, the Township office is able to process your request for a Criminal Record Check/Vulnerable Sector Check. The price for a record check of any kind is $41.00. However, police checks required for volunteer positions are free so long as the applicant has a letter from the organization. If you wish to have the completed record check mailed to you from the OPP office, instead of picking up the completed record check at the Township Office, you are required to bring in a self addressed, stamped envelope to the Township Office to be processed with the record check.

Please Note: Any CAS kinship or adoption applicants are to attend the Ingersoll or Tillsonburg detachments as the Township office is unable to process these applications.
