The FBI's National Data Exchange (N-DEx)


N-DEx is an unclassified national information sharing system that enables criminal justice agencies to search, link, analyze, and share local, state, tribal, and federal records.
  • No fee
  • Available 24/7
  • Easy web-based access
  • N-DEx contains incident, arrest, and booking reports; pretrial investigations; super-vised released reports; calls for service; photos; and field contact/identification records.

Why N-DEx?

N-DEx complements other well-known FBI systems, such as the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), Interstate Identification Index (III), and Next Generation Identification (NGI) that provide critical information to the criminal justice community. The information that would not be contained in those systems, i.e., incident and case reports, full Department of Justice (DOJ) case files, and corrections data, is available in N-DEx. N-DEx fills information gaps and provides situational awareness.
