Criminal Intelligence Service British Columbia and Yukon Territory (CISBC/YT) is one of ten Provincial Bureaux operating independently within the Criminal Intelligence Service Canada (CISC) umbrella. Our fundamental purpose is to research and produce timely, relevant, analytical products that assist in the detection and disruption of serious and organized crime in both BC and Yukon. Staffed with employees currently seconded from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and from the Vancouver Police Department, CISBC/YT provides these products for the greater law enforcement community to assist both police managers and organized crime investigators in making intelligence led decisions.
While promoting inter-agency cooperation within our law enforcement community, CISBC/YT facilitates the sharing of criminal intelligence amongst our member agencies through the use of the Automated Criminal Intelligence Information System (ACIIS), a national database for criminal information and intelligence on organized and serious crime. Maintained by CISC, it is the only such repository in Canada. Through ACIIS, law enforcement agencies collaborate in the collection, analysis and sharing of criminal intelligence across the country.
CISBC/YT is staffed with specialized intelligence analysts and support staff who focus on specific criminal markets that normally mirror provincial and national priorities. The analysts collect information to develop criminal intelligence for use in the production of strategic and tactical analytical products. These products address specific law enforcement requirements as identified either by individual clients or for the benefit of the greater law enforcement community in general. Presentations regarding criminal analysis, criminal intelligence, and organized crime in general are also available from CISBC/YT staff. ACIIS training for new users in the law enforcement community is provided as required.
Threat assessments, information bulletins, and operational briefings are some of the products CISBC/YT generates for its law enforcement community. These reports are also used by CISC in the production of products that benefit the national law enforcement community and to help educate the general public in understanding the scope and impact of organized crime in Canada.
