How to engage our services

In Canada Fingerprint submission is the only way in to obtain a Certified Criminal History. If you are near a local police department that is able to roll ink fingerprints then we are able to expedite the fingerprint submission process by digitizing the fingerprints and submitting them electronically to the RCMP.
