Frequently Asked Questions

In order to get your fingerprints taken in the UK, you must contact the police station closest to you. Make sure to reach out to the police station in question before showing up, as many require an appointment to be made for fingerprinting.

Unfortunately not every police station is equipped to take fingerprints, and not all officers are trained in how to take them. Contacting your local police station ahead of time is the best way to confirm whether or not they are able to take your fingerprints.

The Canadian High Commission and Consulates do not provide criminal background check services. They are also unable to provide any information or updates about a past or ongoing criminal record check. The only way to get your fingerprints processed for a criminal record check while living in the UK is to contact an accredited company such as Reliability Screening to process your fingerprints taken outside of Canada and submit them to the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services.

At Reliability Screening, we understand how sensitive your personal information and how important it is to you that we keep it safe and secure. We make sure to follow strict security protocols to ensure that your data and information remains private and secure.
