Police Vulnerable Sector Check Requirements
Submitted By Greg Fritz on Wednesday, August 17, 2016
If you are considering helping with a team this year...

All Coaching Staff, Trainers, Managers, Parent Reps, Executive Members as well as those who help on the ice as On-Ice volunteers are required under the OMHA Police Record Check Policy to obtain a clear police screening.  This is being done with a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC), which will be valid for Arran Elderslie Minor Hockey purposes for a period of maximum 3 years, expiring August 31 of the third year after the PVSC was obtained.  Volunteer must complete and sign an offence declaration in the years in between the checks.

Volunteers will be required to obtain a Police Vulnerable Sector Check from the jurisdiction in which they reside.  It is best to contact that local jurisdiction beforehand to confirm requirements for the PVSC.  The police are obligated to make a visual identification of each applicant, NO EXCEPTIONS. The person will need to show two pieces of identification, preferably government issued, one being photo identification ie. drivers license. For more information, PVSC form and a list of acceptable forms of identification, go to the OPP Web Site.

The Police Vulnerable Sector Check is an agency/organization driven request. In order to have this completed, you must have an agency/organization letter which explains that you need a Police Vulnerable Sector Check.  Click link for Arran-Elderslie Minor Hockey Cover Letter.

Each applicant will receive a response letter from the Police, the original reply must be submitted to Arran-Elderslie Minor Hockey in order for this process to be complete and the applicant approved.  A copy may be taken and maintained by the volunteer.

After it has been confirmed that an original PVSC is on file with Arran-Elderslie Minor Hockey that has not yet expired as per above, a declaration may be signed by the applicant in place of obtaining a fresh PVSC.  For more information on Declaration of a Criminal Record Form LE229  go to OPP Web Site to print out the declaration, complete the form and submit the original signed copy to Arran-Elderslie Minor Hockey.  A copy may be taken and maintained by the volunteer.

No person will be rostered to a team coaching staff or allowed to assist on-ice unless an original PVSC (or an alternate criminal offence declaration for the subsequent years of validity of an earlier obtained PVSC) has been submitted to Arran-Elderslie Minor Hockey.
