The Deep River Police Service offers a number of services to the citizens of Deep River:
- Vacant House Checks - When leaving for a weekend or longer, your insurance usually requires that someone be left to check on your residence. Simply drop by the station or call 613 584-3500 Ext. 118 and leave the following information: your name, the address to be checked, when you will be away and expected date of return, the name of any key holder or person checking on your residence and any special details such as lights on timer etc.
- Criminal Record Checks - Many employers are requiring new employees to provide documentation reporting on their criminal record status. The same can be said of organizations utilizing volunteers. In response to this need, the Deep River Police Service completes and provides written documentation for employees and volunteers requiring this service. There is a $25.00 fee for employment purpose record checks. Volunteer record checks are free where the volunteer work is being done in the Town of Deep River.
