Respitory for Integrated Criminalistic Imaging (RICI) is an invaluable imaging component used by the Toronto Police Service. RICI is a computer mugshot system which runs on a Windows operating system.

RICI Quality Control responsibilities include:

  • Operation and maintenance of the RICI mug-shot system throughout the Service
  • Create photo line-ups
  • Printing of black and white or colour stored images
  • Training Service members in RICI and Livescan

To date we have approximately 800,000 digital images stored on the system. When a person is charged and fingerprinted, his/her physical attributes and image are loaded onto the database. A physical description obtained from a witness is searched on the system and retrieves people matching those physical attributes. The witness then go through the selected images using various function keys.

In the past, victims and witnesses had to be interviewed at FIS to produced lineups. We have distributed the technology and trained officers in all Divisional and Investigative Units. They can now produce lineups of suspects for witnesses and victims to establish identifications in a timely manner.
