Biography / Administrative history
The Information and Identification Services program is dedicated to maintaining, managing and disseminating shared police information on behalf of the Canadian Law Enforcement Community and other accredited Canadian and international agencies. These support services include the automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS), the Canadian Firearms Registry (CFR), the Missing Children's Registry (MCR) and including a Forensic Identification and photographic service. The prime service line objective is to sustain a national leadership role in the development and implementation of the most efficient information technologies that support criminal justice initiatives in the prevention, detection and suppression of crime. This is accomplished through promoting national networking and cohesiveness within the field of Canadian police information systems and applied technologies. InfoSource
