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

The National Crime Information Center Registry (NCIC) is a nationwide, electronic database that contains protective order information that is used by law enforcement agencies in the U.S, Canada, and Puerto Rico.  It is managed by the FBI and state law enforcement officials.  This database helps law enforcement officers track protective orders across state lines and allows law enforcement to identify orders from other states.

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