Police Information Check
Under the provisions of Protection for Persons in Care Act, all new employees, volunteers and other people engaged for services by designated agencies (hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, social service agencies, etc.) must complete a Police Information Check (also known as a Criminal Record Check, Security Clearance Check, or Police Clearance), which must include a Vulnerable Sector Check. In addition, certain other agencies or organizations may require students to present a Police Information Check, Vulnerable Sector Check or Child Intervention Check prior to entering a field practicum.
Students who have concerns related to their ability to provide a clear Police Information Check should consult with the Faculty. Students will be informed of the need for a Police Information Check or other such checks prior to specific field practicum. See Requirement for Police Information Checks for more information on the general requirements concerning Police Information Checks and the fees associated with them.
