The Belleville Police Service is advising that the $20.00 fingerprint fee will be waived for volunteers whose initial query on the RCMP database when the Venerable Sector screening has revealed that the applicants birthdate and gender is a match to an individual who has received a record suspension (Pardon) for a sexual offence. This is a possibility when applying for the Vulnerable Sector screening, and necessitates the attendance of the individual so that the Belleville Police Service may take fingerprints for comparison to these records to complete the screening process.
