RCMP Notification of Criminal Record Checks Missing Embossment

A small number of criminal record checks were mistakenly sent out, by the RCMP, without the RCMP embossment, which is a key and required security feature. Only those individuals whose check indicates they are not associated to a criminal record are impacted by this error. If you recently received a criminal record verification and it does not have the RCMP embossment, please contact the RCMP immediately to have it re-issued as the document is considered invalid without this key security feature.
