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 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 Wyoming, the state that issued your Order of Protection may already have entered your order into the NCIC.  If not, your order may be entered into the NCIC once your order is registered in WY.

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