About 2 months ago I had charges against me withdrawn. I do know that the charges still show up on my record though until I have it purged. The charges against me were in Ottawa and I live in Alberta. My questions are; can I request to have them purged from Alberta? How do I go about that, any legal paperwork needed? Do I write a letter? Is there a time frame I need to wait before requesting my fingerprints and mug shot are destroyed since it has only been 2 months? <p> </p> <p> I do know that I need the Ottawa police to request the RCMP to remove it, I just don't know how to go about it or where to start. Thank you.</p>
