In 2017, the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) entered 651,226 missing person records into their database. This was a .6 percent increase from the 2016 records of 647,435 missing persons. During the same period, the NCIC purged 651,215 records from its database due to the person returned home, law enforcement located the subject or it was determined the record was invalid.

The NCIC is considered the “lifeline” of law enforcement. It’s the electronic crime data clearinghouse that just about any criminal justice agency around the nation can tap into 24 hours a day, all year long. It helps criminal justice professionals locate:

  • Apprehend fugitives
  • Recover stolen property
  • Locate missing persons

It helps law enforcement officers perform their jobs more safely and helps protect the public with necessary information.
