Sharing Resources to Enhance Investigations
The National Intelligence Agency Inc. is fully committed to ongoing training and research for our agents, as well as our colleagues throughout the United States of America. In this regard, it is of special interest to the National Intelligence Agency Inc. that ongoing development and an expansion of databases that contain DNA profiles at the Federal, State and local levels are greatly enhanced in their ability to solve cases based upon DNA. Convicted offender databases, as well as a number of other databases that are largely unknown to the general public have DNA databases that store hundreds of thousands of potential suspect DNA profiles; against which DNA profiles developed from current crime scene evidence can be compared. Consequently DNA evidence or profiles obtained may link a person to other criminal acts in which the perpetrators identity is known. The list below includes a variety of helpful investigative tools and resources available:
