Name-Based Criminal Record Check
A name based criminal record check is a search based on two parameters of your name and date of birth. Manitoba First Nations Police service will check the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records using the information given by the applicant. This type of check is used to determine the possible existence of a crime in the past based on the search of the name and the date of birth. It is the most common, and it’s a preliminary check that will indicate if the fingerprints are required for a definitive identity.
The search may also include court records and other record management systems belonging to other police services through the Police Information Portal (PIP). The search could also include other shared databases.
Fingerprint Based Criminal Record Check
It is a police information check that looks into the RCMP’s national repository of criminal and fingerprints record information. It is a more reliable search than the name-based search because fingerprints are unique. The search results produce background check information where the fingerprints have verified the applicant’s identity, and it is also referred to as the verified criminal record check.
You can go to your local detachment and submit your fingerprints electronically. It costs $25.00, and it is paid before your fingerprints are taken. Contact us today if you have any questions or inquiries.

It involves searching based on the applicant’s name and date of birth in the local police record management systems, often known as local indices check. Additionally, it also checks into CPIC identification, investigative and intelligence databases. The search could also include court records and records management systems through the Police Information Portal (PIP) or other shared databases.
