    Police Record Check

    Post  Amanda on Fri Jan 08, 2010 2:36 pm

    Where do you get the forms for your police record check? It should be on the Sheridan website, however I can't find it! I Believe that they do hand out a copy to you your first week of class, but this could always change.

    If you're looking for a downloadable copy from the internet, you can get it from the OESC website --> http://www.oesc-cseo.org/English/services.html

    Currently, OESC isn't processing any applications as there has been some issues, and will need to have changes in the near future. So far, these were the last couple of updates:

    IMPORTANT UPDATES ON POLICE RECORD CHECK SERVICES!
    January 7, 2010
    Bob Williams from OESC met with officials from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (policing) and the RCMP on Wednesday, January 6. It was a productive meeting, with all parties committed to developing a resolution that will meet the requirements of School Boards, Service Providers, Colleges, Universities and the RCMP. The options are being carefully evaluated. It is hoped that we will have the basis for a resolution shortly. As soon as more information is available, it will be posted on this web-site. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

    OESC is meeting with officials from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (policing) and the RCMP on Wednesday, January 6. We will post a futher update on the morning of Thursday, January 7, hopefully with a resolution through OESC that will meet the requirements of School Boards, Service Providers, Colleges, Universities as well as the RCMP and Provincial Government.

    PNS will keep you informed and up-to-date as per the OESC website. Sheridan College might also recommend going about the police check in a different way. DO NOT go to your nearest police station, pay $50, and get a check done...because the paperwork won't suffice in the long-term care facilities and hospitals!

    Cheers!

    Hi Antar,

    We are unsure at this time when the police record check is going to be available. There was recently some changes that came into place by the RCMP, and right now they are currently working to update the application and get the processing started again. Currently, it is at a stand still. Even if you send the paper form in, they will not process your application. As for which one you need to choose, again, at this time we are unsure. Until the new applications are posted we are not sure of what changes will take place.

    A year ago, Sheridan (or moreso the Hospitals and Long-term Care Facilities) were NOT accepting police record checks that were done at your local police station, and that they had to be done via OESC. Perhaps because of what is going on right now they are changing the protocol, this we are unsure of as well. I am going to get a hold of a few people at Sheridan and find out this answer for you.

    Keep checking back on this thread Antar (and others), to find out what answers we get from Sheridan! Thanks everyone!

    Regards

    police record check

    Post  ndlovun on Mon Jan 18, 2010 2:45 am

    At the last meeting we had last week during out practical lab, we were told that we can go to our local police station and ask them to do a criminal record check for vulnerable persons and this will be fine.

    The web organization that normaly does the criminal checks is not doing them and no one knows when they will start doing them so I would suggest that any one who is waiting doesnt do so but confirms with one of the lab instructors what criminal check they need to get from their local police station because I called peel region and they told me right now its a 3 week wait but if it gets busier the wait could be longer.

    I confirmed this with the faculty today, including the program coordinator. For now a police record check from your local police station will suffice until the OESC is back up and running!

    Cheers!
