PRIME-BC (Police Records Information Management Environment) is the information management system police across British Columbia use to access data and other critical information that helps them prevent and solve crime. It is the only multi-jurisdictional police records management and computer-aided dispatch system covering an entire province in Canada and has been described as unique, leading edge and a model for sharing police information in North America.
PRIME-BC facilitates the sharing of information between agencies and real-time access to the vital data that supports frontline policing, criminal investigations and crime analysis. The PRIME-BC system supports 13 independent and provincial police agencies and 135 RCMP detachments in British Columbia. More than 9,500 police officers interact with PRIME-BC.
