Applications to Destroy Fingerprints and Photos Taken By the Police

If you have had your charges dismissed or withdrawn, or if you were granted a discharge, you are likely eligible to have the fingerprints and photos taken by the police destroyed.  We provide services regarding the application for the destruction of these fingerprints and photos.  Please contact our office for more information. 

If you were arrested, fingerprinted and charged with an offence that resulted in a non-conviction finding in court, you may be eligible for a destruction of your fingerprints and photograph.

Each request is reviewed on a case by case basis and destruction requests may be denied in some cases. Municipal police agencies are not required to destroy identification documents.

If approved this does not guarantee that all information compiled as a result of the investigation will be removed from the databases. Additionally the results of all court proceedings will remain in the provincial court systems.
