Required Record Checks

Criminal Record & Vulnerable Sector Check

A Criminal Record & Police Vulnerable Sector Check dated within six months IS REQUIRED as a condition of employment and for all staff and volunteers. It must be submitted to WSD Human Resources before your first day of work.

Following this initial check, all staff and volunteers will be required to fill out a self-declaration form annually.

  • Please apply in person at the Police Detachment in the community you reside in. 
  • You MUST bring two pieces of government-issued identification, one of which must be a photo ID if at all possible. At least one piece of ID MUST have your local address, proving you reside in the same community as the Detachment.
