How Do I Obtain a Criminal Records Check?

IN-PERSON (through Richmond RCMP)

The process only takes a few minutes and can be done at the Richmond RCMP detachment at 11411 No. 5 Road (just south of The Keg). Take the below letter with you and it will be done free of charge. Most applicants receive their CRC back right away with a 5 minute wait. If you have to go back and pick it up, please note that the onus is on you to follow-up. The RCMP do not call to tell you your CRC is ready for pick-up.

Scan and email your completed CRC to riskmanagement@richmondfc.ca

CRCs completed for Richmond FC are valid for 3 years.
