Police Information Check Unit, Calgary Police Service
Welcome to ePIC - the electronic Police Information Check online system.
The Police Information Check Unit of the Calgary Police Service is very pleased to offer the citizens of Calgary the ability to utilize an automated online system for submitting Police Information Checks.
ePIC will allow Applicants the convenience of applying online to submit their applications 24/7 from any location. There is no paperwork required and applicants can monitor the status of their application, any time, through their own personal account. Applicants have the ability to pay for their application through a secure payment system which accepts credit card and interac transactions.
The ePIC system will allow results of the Police Information Check applications to be delivered directly to Applicants for viewing online. Applicants will be able to share their completed Police Information Check results with an Agency and additionally, can share the same results, to multiple agencies without having to submit a new application.
ePIC will allow Agencies the convenience to create accounts and view all of their applicants’ results online. Agencies will have the option of paying for their applicants' Police Information Checks through a secure credit card payment system. Agencies will be able to monitor the Police Information Check Unit application processing dates and manage or track shared applicant results.
Agencies will be able to accept applicants’ shared results, of a Police Information Check, that was originally completed for a different Agency. Sharing completed results with other Agencies can offer less time delays, reduced associated costs and the potential to expedite placement for potential employees, volunteers or students.
The Police Information Check Unit is confident our new ePIC online system will greatly enhance our service to the citizens of Calgary.
