Police Checks (JLMSA Policy)

For the safety of the children, the JLMSA requires all coaches to complete a Police Record Check: Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) for Volunteers.  This is a small cost of money and time to assist us in keeping our children safe. This is an annual process that even returning coaches are to complete. We are a small community where most of us know each other, but it is due diligence by the JLMSA that is expected by everyone to keep our kids safe. 

All information is kept strictly confidential.

How To Apply

Police Checks can be obtained from Niagara Police either in person at your local police station or online. Niagara Police do NOT recommend you apply online if you:

  • Have lived in Canada for less than one (1) year, and/or;
  • Are under the age of twenty-one (21) years, and/or;
  • Have no established personal credit history - i.e. no credit cards, bank loans, mortgage, etc. - that is required in order to authenticate (verify) your identification online.

If one of those situations apply to you, please use the in-person process to obtain a police record check.
