Police Information and Vulnerable Sector Checks (Criminal Record Checks)
Police Information Checks (PICs) and Vulnerable Sector Checks (VSCs) can be completed at the Olds RCMP detachment as long as you are a resident of the Olds detachment service area.
Many employers and volunteer organizations now require a PIC. People working or volunteering with persons in the vulnerable sector (children, disabled, medical patients, elderly) will need a VSC.
FEES: There is a $25.00 (cash only) fee for any VIC or VSC for employment purposes. If fingerprints are required an additional fee of $25.00 (cash only) is required (see below).
There is no fee for VIC or VSC for volunteer or educational purposes, as long as a letter from the volunteer organization or school requesting the check, is provided.
REQUIREMENTS: You are required to attend the Olds detachment and fill out the appropriate application form. You will also need to provide 1 piece of government photo ID (driver's license, passport, PAL, etc.) and 1 piece of ID that contains your name and birthdate (birth certificate, Alberta Health Card, etc.). If your ID does not confirm your residency in the Olds detachment area, then proof must also be provided (rental agreement, utility bill, etc.)
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE? PIC/VSC applications submitted anytime up to Wednesdays - noon will be ready for pick up the next day Thursday. Results will be held for 90 days. If you are required to submit fingerprints, there is an additional wait time, which will vary depending on your individual circumstances. Your PIC/VSC can be picked up at the detachment during front counter hours - 8:30 am - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday (except statutory holidays).

Fingerprints and reports being returned from Ottawa can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 12 weeks, depending on individual circumstances. If a criminal record does exist, a longer waiting time can be expected.
Reporting Motor Vehicle Collisions
If no one is seriously injured and both vehicles are driveable, you do not need police to attend the scene of your collision. You will need to report the collision afterward if there are any minor injuries or damage is more than $2,000.
Exchange information with other driver - If you have a cell phone, you can use it to take pictures of the other driver's registration, insurance and driver's license instead of writing the information out. If possible, take pictures that show the damage to both vehicles and the location of the collision. Obtain contact information from any persons that may have witnessed the collision.
Report the Collision in Person at the Olds RCMP detachment front counter 5110 - 65th Avenue, Olds, Alberta - 8:30 am - 4:00 pm Monday - Friday (except statutory holidays).
You will be required to fill out a collision report and provide the information you exchanged with the other driver: registration, insurance, and driver's license for all the involved vehicles. You will also need to provide information and photos of the damage on vehicles, witness contacts, as well as the location/address of the collision.
You are responsible for reporting the collision to your insurance company. Filing a police report does not mean your insurance company will be notified.
Reporting a Hit & Run - It is illegal to leave the scene of an accident, and drivers that do so will face charges. If your car has been struck and the driver leaves without making an effort to exchange information with you, report the collision to the police. If possible, record the make, model, and license plate number of the other vehicle - partial license plates are also useful.
