TRIPPLE I CHECK INFORMATION FROM THE INTERNET


I-2.3 THE III
The III segment of IAFIS is the national system designed to provide automated CHRI. The III is an index‑pointer system that allows for the exchange of criminal history records ("rap sheets"). The III stores the criminal history records of Federal offenders and those offenders submitted by participating and non‑participating III States. All information in the III is supported by fingerprint submissions. Under the III, the FBI maintains an index of persons arrested for felonies or misdemeanors under either State or Federal law. The index includes identification data such as name, birth date, race, and sex. In addition, the index contains FBI and State identification numbers (SID) from each State that has information about an individual. Search queries using names and other identifiers are made by law enforcement agencies throughout the country. The automated name search process takes about two seconds[/b] and if a hit occurs, record requests are made using the associated SID or FBI number. Data are automatically retrieved from the appropriate repositories, including State repositories, and forwarded to the requesting agency. As of December 2006, forty‑eight States were participating in III.
