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 information about protection orders and is used by law enforcement agencies in the U.S, Canada, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. It is managed by the FBI and state law enforcement officials.*

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