Vulnerable people may include children, youth, the elderly, people with physical, developmental, emotional, social, or other disabilities, people who are addicted or dependent on addictive substances, and people who have been the victim of a crime or an accident.
Applicants who require a Vulnerable Sector Check from their organization must present themselves in person and provide written consent in order for the checks to be conducted.

Turtle Mountain RCMP were lucky to have Cst. Neufeld and his police dog in training, Pietro do relief work for us. Friday morning Pietro and Cst. Neufeld were up and at it rocking and rolling at the Lakeside Christian School in Killarney. They did a 30-minute presentation for the school and the kids had lots of questions. Then off to Killarney School for a walk around with the Principal and teachers left their doors open for them. It was lunch time and lots of kids everywhere. It was good for the dog, and he saw most of the school. On Tuesday, Pietro and Cst. Neufeld were back on the road and off to Boissevain School for a visit. The school opened their doors for them, and they visited almost every classroom!! Then off to Deloraine School for an afternoon visit with the kids. Pietro also left a little “present” on the gym floor in Deloraine. Got it cleaned up but have a feeling many homes will be talking about that one for a while. Pietro was quite tired when he was done his public relations work. Thanks to all the schools and Killarney council members for entertaining visits from Pietro and his handler. Sorry we didn't make it to all the schools in the area. Cst. Neufeld has been accepted into the handler course in Alberta this spring. Cst. Neufeld had this to say about the Turtle Mountain area...."This is a little gem of a community I must say. Between the Oak and Owl, Brooke at 007 Cuts and meals at the Blarney Stone, it has everything you need. And if that isn't enough to convince members to come work here......96.1 Bounce FM radio is a beauty." Both were teary eyed as they rode off into the sunrise at the end of their week with 96.1 Bounce FM playing in the background.
