Criminal Database Systems

 

Criminal Databases

Criminal Database Systems provide the crime and public data that is used by the different areas of the criminal justice system such as law enforcement, government agencies, the courts and the corrections system. The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) provides innovative leadership to federal, state, local, and tribal justice systems, by disseminating state-of-the art knowledge and practices across America, and providing grants for the implementation of these crime fighting strategies. Because most of the responsibility for crime control and prevention falls to law enforcement officers in states, cities, and neighborhoods, the federal government can be effective in these areas only to the extent that it can enter into partnerships with these officers. Therefore, OJP does not directly carry out law enforcement and justice activities. Instead, OJP works in partnership with the justice community to identify the most pressing crime-related challenges confronting the justice system and to provide information, training, coordination, and innovative strategies and approaches for addressing these challenges.

National Crime Information Center

The National Crime Information Center, or NCIC, database contains 19 files, which include seven files of stolen property records and 12 files related to people. Some of the specific files that provide the database information are missing persons, national sex offender registry, foreign fugitives, protection orders, supervised release files, U.S. Secret Service Protective Files, terrorist files, gang files and wanted people files. NCIC allows 24/7 nationwide access to law enforcement. States participate by submitting fingerprint records and informationMore for inclusion into the database.

Interstate Identification Index

Law enforcement accesses the Interstate Identification Index, or III, through the same interface used to access the NCIC database. The FBI maintains the index which compiles criminal history record information for automated access. Records identified during the five-second search are forwarded to the requesting organization. Participating states must have compatible criminal record technology. Fifty states and the District of Columbia participate in the III. Fourteen states participate in the National Fingerprint File, a program of the Interstate Identification Index which requires participating states to index their Moreown submitted records.

Combined DNA Index System

The Combined DNA Index System, known as CODIS, is administered by the FBI. CODIS maintains searchable databases of DNA profiles. Special CODIS software allows criminal justice laboratories around the country to submit, share and compare DNA information. The central database created with the data from CODIS is the National DNA Index System, or NDIS. The FBI conducts a weekly Moresearch of the NDIS system.

Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System

The Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, or IAFIS, is a national fingerprint and criminal history system that responds to requests 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help local, state, and federal partners and investigators solve and prevent crime and catch criminals and terrorists. IAFIS provides automated fingerprint search capabilities, latent search capability, Moreelectronic image storage, and electronic exchange of fingerprints and responses.

Corrections Information Systems

Corrections systems involve prison, probation and parole. State departments of correction and the Federal Bureau of Prisons maintain databases to track adult offenders who are sentenced to prison, on probation or granted parole. State departments of juvenile justice maintain databases separate from adult records.
