Did you know…? If you suspect that a motor vehicle or property has been stolen there is a program through the Canadian Police Information Center to search Canada’s national database to find out.
The Canadian Police Information Center (CPIC) is a Canadian National database that allows the public to search to see if a motor vehicle or property has been reported stolen. Through this database the public can search:
- Vehicles by VIN (vehicle identification number)
- Property by serial number
- Boats by name, hull identification number, licence number, registration number
- Boat motors by serial number and type
- Bicycles by serial number
- Firearms by serial number
To search vehicles and property follow this link:
If following a search you receive a positive result, contact the local authorities immediately.
The CPIC also provides law enforcement agencies the ability to access information on a number of matters. It is Canada's only national law enforcement networking computer system ensuring officers all across the country can access the same information. It also offers a link for the law enforcement officers to use the national information-sharing system which can link criminal justice and law enforcement partners across Canada and internationally.
