Law Enforcement Information Management Study

As a precursor to the Canadian Community Safety Information Management Strategy (CCSIMS), and led by the CACP Information and Communications Technology Committee, an IDC Canada study was funded by the Canadian Safety and Security Program (CSSP). The objective of this study was to develop a common understanding of Canadian law enforcement's major investigative and operational systems (local, regional, provincial and federal levels) and to develop a common vision towards improved interoperability.

Canadian Community Safety Information Management Strategy

The Canadian Community Safety Information Management Strategy (CCSIMS) is a strategic document that sets goals and identifies key national priorities to enhance governance, planning, technology, training and exercises to promote information management in Canada. The CCSIMS, through its Action Plans, provides a series of action items, including milestones, to help emergency responders and relevant government officials make measurable improvements in day-to-day operations, as well as emergency communications, on an annual basis.
