What is the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Registry? Who has access to it?

The National Crime Information Center Registry (NCIC) is a nationwide, electronic database used by law enforcement agencies in the U.S, Canada, and Puerto Rico. It is managed by the FBI and state law enforcement officials.

Before moving to Florida, the state that issued your protection order may already have entered your order into the NCIC. If not, your order should be entered into the NCIC once your order is registered in FL. You may want to call your local sheriff department to find out if your order was entered.

All law enforcement officials have access to the NCIC database, but the information is encrypted so outsiders cannot access it.
