The Criminal Records Review Act ensures that people who work with or may potentially have unsupervised access to children or vulnerable adults undergo a Police Information Check (PIC).
A person whose criminal record suggests they present a risk of physical or sexual abuse to children or a risk of physical, sexual or financial abuse to vulnerable adults will not have access to these groups.
To support British Columbia’s non-profit sector, volunteer organizations that are not covered by the act, but have volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults, can have Police Information Checks done for free.
How can I get my PIC completed?
Please contact the Langley Volunteer Bureau at info@LangleyVolunteers.ca and we will forward the CRC consent request form for you to complete and return to us or email you a link to complete your PIC online.
If you register at bettercommunity.ca for a volunteering position that requires a Police Information Check and you do not have a current PIC, Langley Volunteer Bureau will follow-up with you to get your PIC completed.
IDENTITY VERIFICATION: Additionally, the CRRP will require: • Copies of two valid pieces of their ID; and • A photograph of passport quality: eyes open and clearly visible; mouth closed and not smiling; no shadows, glare or flash reflections; centered and squared; and taken within 6 months.
The Langley Volunteer Bureau will submit the CRC and Identification on your behalf to the Criminal Records Review Program.
If you have obtained a Police Information Check within the past 5 years, we have a form that you can fill out to share the information with us or the organization you are volunteering with.
There is no fee or charge to have a Police Information Check processed if you are volunteering.
