Authorization – Scenario 20

Scenario 20 Authorization (Rape Victim Information)
Capability Authorization (Privacy); Search (Records)
Data Incident Report
Crime Rape
Functional Areas Operational

An LEA wants to share incident data in N-DEx, but has a state law that prohibits unauthorized dissemination of victim information from records containing information of rape victims.

Outcome N-DEx is configured at the appropriate agreed upon level (user, agency, state, national) so incident reports on rape cases precludes the sharing of data elements about the victim. When a user from another agency accesses the incident report, N-DEx excludes victim identifying information (e.g., name, address, SSAN), but is able to share information on other aspects of the entity.
N-DEx Process that Allows Outcome See diagram below.

As depicted, the N-DEx system is configurable at the appropriate agreed upon level (user, agency, state, national) so that victim information in records with an offense code of forcible rape (for example) is recognized and excludes victim information from sharing. N-DEx will allow for the maximum flexibility in configuring the system to promote information sharing. As depicted, N-DEx Visualization capabilities allow users to generate graphical representations of various views of incident data to support strategic crime analysis.
