How can I find out about the status of a submission once it has been sent to the RCMP?

Once Edmonton Fingerprinting Services submits applicant’s fingerprints electronically and the fingerprints have been successfully received by the RCMP, the RCMP will not release any further information to Edmonton Fingerprinting Services.

No Criminal Record: 5 – 10 business days

WITH Criminal Record: 120 days or more

If the application has taken longer than the time indicated above, the applicant or authorized Third Party may inquire about the status of the electronic fingerprints submission by contacting the RCMP via email:

The following information must be provided in the inquiring email:

  • Applicant’s full name
  • Applicant’s date of birth
  • The type of application submitted (Criminal Record Check)
  • The date the application was submitted to the RCMP
  • A daytime contact phone number
  • The Document Control Number (DCN)

Please note: Do not expect an immediate e-mail response from the RCMP
