Overview Edit

The Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) was established in February 1992 to serve as the focal point and central repository for criminal justice information services in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Programs that were initially consolidated under the CJIS Division include the National Crime Information Center (NCIC), Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR), and Fingerprint Identification. In addition, responsibility for several ongoing technological initiatives was also transferred to the CJIS Division, including the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS), NCIC 2000, and the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS).
