The Halton Regional Police offers digital fingerprinting services to civilians who reside within the region of Halton (Burlington, Oakville, Milton, Halton Hills). The fingerprint based certified criminal record check (police clearance) may be needed for immigration, citizenship, employment, adoptions, volunteering, school programs, foreign travel visas, pardon applications, government contracts and licenses, and for all other non-criminal purposes.
