Regina police hope to raise an extra $130,000 doing criminal record checks for the public after raising the fee to $45 from $35.

The proposal is part of the Regina Police Service budget going to Tuesday's city council meeting.

The $45 fee is for criminal record check applications by workers who need to show their employer a clean record.

Police hope to take in more revenue with a higher fee plus greater volume — more employees getting checks.

Volunteers from school, church and community groups get their criminal record checks at no charge and that will continue in 2013, the police budget says.

The budget proposes $69 million in operating spending and $2.6 million in capital spending.
