The Administrative Clerk will go through the process with you, check your ID and let you know approximately how long it will take until your VSS should be complete. They will contact you when it is ready and you will need to go to pick it up.

3. Pick up & submit to VP/Privacy Officer
Once you have your new VSS from the OPP please place it in a sealed envelope with "Attention: VP/ Privacy Officer" written on the front and place it into the SMMHA office mail slot in the office next to the trophy/display case at the Bracebridge Arena.

PLEASE NOTE: that if your name and birth date are similar to someone who has a conviction, you may be asked to submit finger prints before they can provide the VSS. The Bracebridge OPP Detachment can do this on site.
