What is an NCIC “OFFLINE SEARCH?” It can be a game changer for an investigation! An NCIC Off-Line search is a special investigative technique available to every U.S. law enforcement agency through the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS). It is a proven investigative tool that will search NCIC files past and present. At your request for an NCIC Off-Line search, a detailed search of the NCIC active records, purged records, the Interstate Identification Index, and the NCIC Transaction Log will be conducted for investigative information not available with a standard On-line NCIC query. This session will explain how the search works and will provide several examples of successful use of the Off-Line search. Off –Line search information can assist in determining crucial information during an active case or cold case investigation or review.
