An Offline Search (OLS) request is a tool that allows law enforcement to search CPIC information that cannot be obtained through a regular CPIC query. This tool can search current and past CPIC information. This investigative tool is available to law enforcement and support agencies across Canada and the US. The offline search results are extremely important to front-line officers and has a direct link to the public, officer safety, and organizational liability.
