What our Clients Say?

I’ve not always had positive experiences with government offices but my visit to criminal office was really great. I got there before they open, around 7:45am (they opened at 8:30am), approx 20 persons were there before me and I got through just before 9:30am. The process was fairly quick and easy, I was pre-screened at the door and then again on the inside, then I was fingerprinted then waited to get my date to pick up my results. I wish all government offices were this efficient. Thank you.

JCF online police certificate application system is impressive. There was a small bump in the road re the authentication of the payment receipt # but it was eventually done. It’s user friendly with a pleasant interface. Well done
