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 Strategic Information and Operations Center (SIOC) is the FBI’s global command and communications center. It operates around the clock to maintain enterprise-wide situational awareness and to provide FBI leadership with strategic information by serving as a clearinghouse to collect, process, and disseminate information in a timely manner.
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.
