With COVID-19 concerns, Greater Sudbury Police say they are suspending some non-essential services “in order to reduce the potential spread of illness.”

Unless issued by a police officer or court-ordered, the police service says it is temporarily suspending non-essential record checks (those seeking record checks for volunteer work) and fingerprint checks.

However, GSPS will continue to provide fingerprinting for those who require it for employment purposes.

The property branch will only be returning court-ordered property items. 

If you have a court-order for property items, contact the property branch at 705-675-9171 extension 2442, 2443, or 2444 in order to set up an appointment.

“We want to reassure our community that we are taking every precaution in order to ensure that there is no interruption in the delivery of our core, essential services and that the health, safety and well-being of our members and of our community members remains our top priority,” said a press release issued by Greater Sudbury Police on Friday afternoon.

“We would like to thank you in advance for your patience.”
