Session Type: Workshop

The National Data Exchange (N-DEx) is a national investigative information sharing system that contains records from more than 8,000 federal, state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies. The information contained in N-DEx can support the probation and parole community in pre-sentence investigations and the continuous monitoring of caseloads. This session will provide an overview of the information available in N-DEx and show participants how to conduct a batch search of multiple persons and receive continuous updates about new information that is received by N-DEx. The session will also demonstrate how a Subscription can provide a notification of new or changed information in N-DEx as well as deconfliction. The session will also show participants how to access this free service provided to the criminal justice community by the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division.
