BACKGROUND

E-ticketing is a province-wide solution to automate the capability for all law enforcement agencies across the province to support the electronic issuance and submission of motor vehicle tickets and warnings issued under the Provincial Offences Procedures Act (POPA).

Phase 1 of e-Ticketing is currently underway and is limited to RCMP issuance of POPA e-tickets. Subsequent phases of POPA e-ticketing will include expanding e-ticketing ability for other POPA issuing agencies such as municipal police forces, Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE), Off Road Vehicle Enforcement (ORVE), Conservation Enforcement and Liquor and Tobacco Enforcement.

Phase 1 of the Project involves the creation of a centralized database (AMANDA) to house/capture the e-ticketing POPA information. AMANDA will then disseminate required information for various agencies/departments/stakeholders involved in POPA tickets. This dissemination of information will not electronically link to other internal databases that these agency/departments/stakeholders use in capturing POPA data required to manage the functions and roles they manage and participate in during the lifecycle of a POPA Ticket. Electronic linkages from AMANDA to the agency/department internal database will be assessed after Phase 1 is implemented if the agency/department wants seamless linkages between the database systems. AMANDA will, however, for Phase 1, be developed in a manner where the required POPA data is disseminated to the agency/department in a PDF report format.
