Prince, Queens and Kings Districts, Prince Edward Island

News release

Update - January 13, 2022 - We are accepting criminal record checks for employees in essential roles only. Please call your local police detachment to book an appointment ahead of your visit. If you require a criminal record check for non-essential reasons, please contact C5ID and Fingerprinting Solutions Inc., a private company in Charlottetown.

Original news release - December 17, 2021.

In response to the current situation with COVID-19, front counter service for RCMP PEI Headquarters and all RCMP detachments in PEI is being scaled back.

As of December 17, 2021, fingerprinting, general information requests, criminal records checks and vulnerable sector checks will not be available until further notice. We will continue to accept reports of crime and/or non-emergency complaints.

For your health and safety, and the health and safety of our employees, please call the detachment whenever possible instead of going in person. For emergencies, please call 911.

You may receive a phone call from a police officer rather than an in-person response. When our police officers do respond, you may see them wearing personal protective equipment such as a face mask. This is for the safety of the public and our police officers.

Please continue to report crime and suspicious activity to police.

Sgt. Chris Gunn
