I was just wondering what a background check actually checks. I'm scheduled for a ride along with another police service, and I'm curious what they will know about me when I show up. I'm assuming any criminal activity/records, and what else? Can it check previous and current employment and school? Is it very detailed? Thanks!

It is a Criminal Information Request, therefore it only checks for any past, present and pending criminal charges in Canada. Work and school are not included in this check.
