Depending on the results of that search, an in-depth check may be required and will involve fingerprints. An additional fee of $33.75 will apply at the time of printing. The Sarnia Police Service will notify you if this process applies to you.

Electronic applications will be responded to within 2 to 3 business days. In-person applications will be responded to within 7 business days.
