The purpose of this Interface Control Document (ICD) 1.7.7 is to provide law enforcement and other agencies a specification for interfacing electronically with the RCMP National Police Services (NPS). This document implements the ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000 specification.
Agencies that fully implement this specification will be able to capture and transmit biometric data (fingerprint, palm print, facial/mugshot and marks, scars & tattoo images) as well as demographic data in a format compatible with NPS. Agencies will be able to submit criminal, refugee, civil and latent crime scene fingerprints for search against and possible storage in the RCMP National AFIS database.
