Police Information Check

All CSSA coaches must have a Police information check, that includes a VS (Vulnerable Sector) Check as you will be working with minors. A Police Information Check is valid with CSSA for 4 years. CSSA will keep a hard copy of your Police Check on file. If you do not know if your police information check is still valid, please contact us.

Please review important information regarding the mandatory police information check prior to completing your application.

Calgary Speed Skating Association has an agency account set up with the Calgary Police Service. All police information checks must be completed using the new CPS ePIC online program.

Below you will find the application instruction manual, as well you can click on the links below and view the application instruction video.

Please be sure to review the manual and video prior to beginning your police information check.

Police Information Checks are more than a Canadian criminal record check. Also known as a Police Information Check (PIC), information is searched from three databases and the results will be provided on a Calgary Police Service certificate letter. Disclosure will include Canada-wide Criminal Record History, Vulnerable Sector Search (if required) and Police History; this includes Local Police Information and Alberta Provincial court records.

The Calgary Police Service processes Police Information Checks for employment,volunteer opportunities and other relevant purposes, as well; provides Police Record Check information for persons applying for a record suspension (formerly a Pardon).

Standard processing time will be approximately 2-3 weeks; however, this may vary if a follow-up is required and/or an individual has to attend our Westwinds office.
