FBI’s Law Enforcement National Data Exchange to go nationwide

System allows law enforcement agencies to search for, share information on incidents


In a story posted on its website on Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that the Law Enforcement National Data Exchange (N-DEx) will soon be available to law enforcement agencies nationwide.

The data exchange - which allows law enforcement agencies to search, analyze and share information related to incidents/case reports and incarceration data – has up until now only been able to be utilized by a small number of agencies.

The FBI says that it will deliver the final phase of N-DEx later this month, which includes adding probation and parole information to the database and making enhancements to its existing capabilities. The exchange will now reportedly support 200 million searchable records, which with future modifications, could increase to two billion.
