Getting a Police Check


The Calgary Police Service's ePIC system is not currently recognizing our volunteer number, but we can still have our volunteers apply for their police checks in person at one of their DIstrict Offices. We understand that this is far less convenient than the on-line application, but this will serve our purpose until their IT team resolves the issue within ePIC. We thank you in advance for taking the time out of your schedule to get your your check done.


If you need a police check done please follow the 3 steps below:

  1. Print off and fill in the On-Ice Volunteer letter from Bow River (link below). There is no cost to you for this as long as you bring the On-Ice Volunteer letter with our volunteer number on it. Bow River will not be reimbursing volunteers if they are charged a fee because they forgot to bring the letter.
  2. Attend one of the CPS District Offices and bring 2 pieces of Government issued ID with you
