Description: Home Page for NC Division of Criminal Information. In 1968, the growing need for a central computerized network for criminal justice information in North Carolina prompted an extensive survey by the Governor's Law and Order Committee. Their report led to the creation of the Police Information Network (PIN), under the North Carolina Department of Justice, in 1969 by the North Carolina General Assembly. PIN was given authority under North Carolina General Statute (NCGS) 114 - 10 to accomplish the following: to maintain and control the access to information required for the performance of criminal justice duties to collect and correlate information regarding the administration of criminal laws to make analysis and comparisons of the data in cooperation with local, state and national criminal justice agencies In 1985, the Attorney General of North Carolina, head of the state's Department of Justice (DOJ), made PIN part of the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI). The SBI is the law enforcement branch of DOJ. PIN was merged with the SBI's Identification Section and the Division of Criminal Information (DCI) was created. Further reorganization occurred in 2000 creating the Information Technology Division within the Department of Justice. In 2004, several units of DCI were consolidated into the newly formed SBI's Criminal Information and Identification Section. The actual central computer network is now maintained by the Information Technology Division. The SBI Criminal Information and Identification Section units include: AFIS and Technical Search Applicant/Concealed Handgun Permits Auditing CCH/Triple I Processing Data Processing Expungement Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry Training The primary purpose of this section is to serve as a central repository for criminal history record information. This information is reported to the section by all State law enforcement agencies when any subject is charged with a crime. All criminal, court and custody information is then combined into one criminal record and forwarded to the FBI. The section also processes concealed handgun permits, expungement orders for criminal records and non-criminal justice background checks. The section also serves as the central telecommunications center for the State - linking local, State and national criminal justice/law enforcement agencies for the purpose of collecting, storing and disseminating information to assist these agencies. This is accomplished through training and through auditing an agency's record keeping system. Areas evaluated include fingerprint reporting systems along with records entered, modified, cleared and cancelled in the Division of Criminal Information (DCI) network.
