Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act

Access to police information records under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA)

Pursuant to section 68.1 of the British Columbia Police Act, police information and data within the PRIME-BC system are records under the custody and control of the originating law enforcement agency for the purposes of the FIPPA.

(9) If an information management system is provided by a designated service provider that is a public body under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act,

(a) the information and data in the information management system remain, for the purposes of that Act, in the custody and under the control of the law enforcement service from which the information and data originate, and

(b) despite that Act, a person does not have a right of access under that Act to the information and data as being information and data in the custody or under the control of the designated service provider.

For clarity, requests under the FIPPA for access to police information or data in the PRIME-BC system must be made in writing to the originating law enforcement agency. You can obtain mailing address information through department websites.

For your information we are providing the attached link that outlines the FIPPA process: Ministry of Citizen's Services.
