When police arrest persons in Canada a report is made out and registered into the police computer system.
The criminal record is then forwarded to the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC). The information collected by the RCMP is made available to all police services including:
- all government security forces
- all USA law enforcement
- all Border enforcement
The criminal record will have information about your identity, charges against you, convictions, fingerprints, DNA, etc. This information is entered when you have been found guilty of committing one or more criminal offences under the Criminal Code of Canada.
