Police Information Check

Police Information Check

Edmonton West Zone Soccer Association (EMSAwest) requires all Board of Directors, Community Coordinators and Team Officials to have a Criminal Record check which includes a vulnerable sector check (Police Information Check/PIC).

PICs are non-transferable between organizations and are good for up to three years.

Once the PIC has been provided, the Executive Director will review it for approval.

EMSAwest will provide our confirmed volunteers with a link to complete the PIC. If you are providing a PIC, it must be done within three months of the current date. We do not accept PIC forms completed for jobs or from other organizations.

For Team Officials, you must complete a PIC before being approved to volunteer and add to a team roster.

EMSAwest reserves the right to deny any volunteer the opportunity to act as a volunteer – Bylaws 13.2

The Vulnerable Sector Police Information Check includes a check of local police records to determine the existence of a pattern of behaviour that may result in harm to vulnerable persons.  To provide the most accurate information, we need to ensure the applicant is a resident of Edmonton and/or the surrounding jurisdictions authorized to do a Vulnerable Sector search. This is to ensure that vulnerable people are safe from victimization. The RCMP jurisdictions we have the authorization to do Vulnerable Sector searches are:

  • Spruce Grove,
  • Stony Plain,
  • Beaumont,
  • Sherwood Park,
  • St. Albert,
  • Morinville,
  • Fort Saskatchewan,
  • Leduc.

***NEW*** EMSAwest is now using the EPS online Police Check system. If you are volunteering, your community soccer coordinator must send an email advising your full legal name and position. Once received, you will receive an email from EPS to complete an online form. You will be required to upload the Third Party Consent form. No witness is required.

Please note it police checks are not transferable from organization to organization.
