Contents

Introduction

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (Also known as the R.C.M.P. or Mounties) operate in Federal, Provincial, and Local/Municipal capacities across Canada. Canada is divided into 15 organizational units known as divisions, British Columbia falls under the jurisdiction of the E-Division. E-Division, headquartered in Vancouver, is the largest R.C.M.P division comprised of 126 detachments and over 5,000 officers.


In BC

Within British Columbia, the R.C.M.P. use a large number of different communication systems. In the Lower Mainland, the detachments utilize the digital 800Mhz EDACS WARS system. In the Greater Victoria and southern Vancouver Island regions the digital VHF APCO25 CREST system is utilized. Most other places in the province use standard VHF based communications. In the past few years rollout of new narrow banded VHF systems and in-car data terminals has occurred. Encryption is also now very common within systems that support it.

Districts

Lower Mainland District

The Lower Mainland District is the largest R.C.M.P. district in the province by size of population. It covers heavily populated urban areas such as Burnaby and Surrey, to more rural areas such as the Sunshine Coast and Pemberton. The district consists of the entire Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley up to Boston Bar, the Sunshine Coast and Whistler/Squamish. A map can be found on the R.C.M.P. E-Division website. It should be noted that E-Divsion HQ, the Pacific Region Training Center and a number of other R.C.M.P. services are located within the bounds of E-Division.

G.V.R.D. Detachments

There are 8 R.C.M.P. municipal detachments operating in Metro Vancouver. These include:

  • North Vancouver
  • Burnaby
  • Richmond
  • Surrey
  • Langley
  • White Rock
  • Coquitlam
  • Ridge Meadows


All 8 of these detachments currently use E-Comm WARS for their radio communications. This system is Ma/Com EDACS with analog control channels and digital Provoice modulated voice channels. It is presently unmonitorable by any commercially available scanner.

E-Division headquarters and some of the integrated teams (Like the IHIT and IMPACT) use APCO-25 digital encrypted on VHF for some of their traffic.

Rural Detachments

There are 10 detachments in the Lower Mainland district that operate out of Metro Vancouver. These include:

  • Agassiz
  • Boston Bar
  • Bowen Island
  • Chilliwack
  • Hope
  • Mission
  • Pemberton
  • Squamish
  • Sunshine Coast
  • Whistler


These detachments all operate on narrow banded VHF. Some also have in-car data terminals, with further data terminal roll out planned.

Databases

CPIC
The Canadian Police Information Center is a networked computer database system operated by the National Police Service that federally links all law enforcement and justice partners in Canada. It commonly holds warrants, warnings, and other important information. The system carries information on Vehicles, Persons, Property, Marine Equipment, Criminal Records, Dental Characteristics, Inmates, and Wandering Persons. It also allows messaging between CPIC terminals. In recent years the system has been upgraded to provide web based access.
CNI
The Criminal Name Index is not a separate database but is actually a query type made against the CPIC database. It is the lowest level and the one with quickest response. It generally indicates the presence of a criminal history record, with a further more detailed query needed to pull more information.
CIIDS
The Computerized Integrated Information Dispatch System is the central dispatch organization system of the R.C.M.P. It integrates standard computer aided dispatch functions like messaging, incident logging, mapping with the ability to query the multitude of databases out there and interoperability with disparate radio systems.
ROADS
The Remote Office and Dispatch System is simply the mobile version of CIIDS. It allows remote access to many of the same application functions as a full CIIDS console. Amongst the most important data based queries, messaging, and mapping. Most access is via cellular networks via CDPD.
PIRS
The Police Information Retrieval System is an investigative information recording and retrieval system containing detailed information on all events reported to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and covers the entire organization. The database is commonly searched (By file number, address, name for example) for information on previous R.C.M.P. incidents.
PROS
The Police Reporting and Occurrence System is the replacement system for PIRS. It will integrate the existing databases of the R.C.M.P. with new data sources and puts in place much more advanced capabilities. Search, archiving, and security features have all been enhanced.
PRIME
The Police Records Information Management Environment is a British Columbia specific real-time database system. It provides online access to law enforcement records, and is accessible by all provincial law enforcement agencies including the R.C.M.P.
