Introducing Project OPTIC!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our newest investigative tool, Project OPTIC!

Project OPTIC capitalizes on the fact so many people currently use surveillance technology to protect their homes and businesses. Home-based CCTV cameras and business surveillance cameras are not a new phenomenon but today they’re more cost-effective and easier to use than ever before. That's why we created Project OPTIC - a community registry of homes and businesses with surveillance cameras in place.

It's true that we already gather video surveillance evidence on a regular basis, but neighbourhood inquiries are laborious and time-consuming. Project OPTIC helps investigators find and obtain evidence quicker and more efficiently. And, in many police investigations, time is crucial.

Please note that your participation is strictly voluntary. If you have any questions, please contact us at 604-969-7484. Information collected by the RCMP is done so under the authority of the Privacy Act.

To add your address to the registry, simply email and provide your civic address. Please also advise if you are a residence or business.
