What is a record destruction ?
If you are charged with a criminal offence and even if the charge is subsequently dismissed, withdrawn, or stayed, you still have a criminal record.
A record of the charges is kept on file, as well as your fingerprints, photographs and any other information documented by the police at that time. The fingerprints are submitted by the originating police agency which charged you and submitted to the R.C.M.P.. These fingerprints are classified with a unique number known as an F.P.S.. The F.P.S. is attached to your name and will show up every time your name is checked by law enforcement.
"In other words if you have been fingerprinted you have an FPS number"
F.I.P.S. will petition the arresting police force and subsequently the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.) to destroy your fingerprints and photographs and thus remove your criminal record from the C.P.I.C. database.
