Criminal Reference (Police) Check

If you are a resident of the Township of Blandford-Blenheim, the Township office is able to process your request for a Criminal Record Check/Vulnerable Sector Check.

Please Note: If you wish to have the completed record check mailed to you from the OPP office, instead of picking up the completed record check at the Township Office, you are required to bring in a self addressed, stamped envelope to the Township Office to be processed with the record check.
