Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS)
The FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, or CJIS, is a high-tech hub in the hills of West Virginia that provides a range of state of-the-art tools and services to law enforcement, national security and intelligence community partners, and the general public.
The Operational Technology Division (OTD)—based in Quantico, Virginia—develops and deploys technology-based solutions to enable and enhance the FBI’s intelligence, national security, and law enforcement operations. OTD is staffed with a wide array of highly-skilled and multi-disciplined agents, engineers, electronic technicians, forensic examiners, and analysts who support our most significant investigations and national security operations with advanced electronic surveillance, digital forensics, technical surveillance, tactical operations, and communications capabilities.
The mission of the National Name Check Program (NNCP) is to disseminate information from FBI files in response to name check requests received from federal agencies, including components within the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of the federal government, for the purpose of protecting the United States from foreign and domestic threats to national security.
