LEO's new National Dental Image Repository.

Law Enforcement Online (LEO) proudly announces the creation of the National Dental Image Repository (NDIR), which contains supplemental dental images related to the records of missing, unidentified, and wanted persons housed in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). The NDIR provides law enforcement organizations with an avenue for posting their supplemental dental images in a Web environment that will allow direct access to the digital images of the dental records. This new effort eliminates the need to contact each originating agency to retrieve and review physical copies of the records when attempting to make an identification.

The Washington State Patrol has submitted numerous supplemental dental image packages to the NDIR in conjunction with their NCIC records relative to missing, unidentified, and wanted persons. The FBI's Criminal Justice Identification Services Division (CJIS) actively seeks other agencies willing to post their supplemental dental images in the NDIR. For additional information, LEO members can visit the CJIS Special Interest Group (SIG) to view the NDIR site.
