Reduce false positives and customize your searches with unmatched filter options.

The most extensive and flexible choice for nat-crim searches

NCIS allows you to search against a world-class nat-crim file built on a proprietary database compiled from multiple sources: court records; incarceration records; prison and inmate records; probation, parole, and release data; arrest data; and more. CRAs can adjust hundreds of filters to customize each nat-crim search to their specifications, increasing accuracy and efficiency.

Compared to competing nat-crim files, NCIS contains fresher records, more flexible search filtering, and a powerful algorithm that reduces administrative workload.

  • Set hundreds of filters on your own. Popular filters include adjusting the “strictness” of the proprietary matching algorithm, formatting the DOB format, and choosing to include or exclude null DOBs.
  • NCIS’ similarity and probability scoring algorithm averts obstacles such as misspellings and punctuation, transposition, and applicant fraud.
  • Many nat-crim files have a significant lag before records are updated or added. With NCIS, new records enter the database in 24 hours or less.
  • Each search also includes a 50-state sex offender and global terrorist watchlist screening.
