The Surrey RCMP provides ink and digital fingerprints for the following civil purposes:

When you apply for a Police Information Check or Vulnerable Sector Check, you may be required to give the police service a copy of your fingerprints. The fingerprints are only used by the RCMP to confirm your identity. After completion of service, they are destroyed. They are not kept nor searched for other purposes.


SERVICE NOTICE – The front counter at our Newton District Office will be closed until March 2020 for renovation. Please attend to one of our other locations for front counter service during this time.

Surrey residents must attend in person at the front counter of either the Main Detachment (M-F 7am-7pm; Sat/Sun 9am-4pm), Guildford/Fleetwood District 2 Office (M-F 9am-4:30pm), Newton District 3 Office (M-F 9am-4:30pm), or City Centre/Whalley District 1 Office (M-F 9am-4:30pm).

IMPORTANT: Please attend 30 minutes before closing for fingerprint services.



Acceptable Identification

Individuals must present TWO (2) pieces of identification with the same name on both from the following list. NOTE: The BC Services Card combined with the BC Driver's Licence is only considered ONE piece of ID.


You must bring a letter or form from the Immigration Department setting out their requirements (e.g. fingerprints, Police Certificate). If fingerprints are required by a foreign country please check to see if they will accept the RCMP fingerprint form. If not please bring a copy of that country’s fingerprint forms with you. Please also read your documents carefully prior to attending our office so that you know what you require from us as we are unable to refund application fees.
