“The employment police information checks fee increase will maintain a turnaround time of 10 business days as the service increases the number of positions available to process these requests. Otherwise, the processing time for these checks could increase to between 15 to 20 business days,” said Amanda Welfare, manager of the Police Business Operations Section.

Police said by increasing fees, they won’t have to go to city council to ask for more money. Police added fees haven’t been increased in over 10 years but the number of requests keep growing every year.

“All the new fees and processing times are in line with other national policing agencies and Calgarians will still pay less for these services than most other jurisdictions,” said Welfare.
