NCIC 2000 and IAFIS Operational.
The FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) became operational July 28, 1999. IAFIS, which replaced the FBI's Identification Automated System, provides the following major services: 10-print and latent-print identification; criminal history file searches; maintenance and upgrades of records, criminal histories, fingerprints, and photographs; and remote 10-print and latent-print searches. Although IAFIS currently supports both paper and electronic environments, ultimately, agencies must use certified live-scan or card-scan devices to capture and submit electronic fingerprints.
For additional information on either of these programs, law enforcement agencies can contact Roy Weise of the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services Division at 304-625-2730.
