85 per cent of B.C. adults in police database 'disturbing' - Vancouver Sun

"It is wrong to suggest that 85 per cent of British Columbians names are entered into PRIME. In fact, many are multiple calls involving the same people. Names are retained for a minimum of two years, and privacy is maintained through federal and provincial privacy legislation. This is the same privacy standard maintained by other police forces across the country. PRIME is an important tool that is helping us to make big strides in maintaining the safety of communities throughout the province."
