The National Data
Exchange Program (N-DEx) is a nationwide tool for law enforcement to exchange
criminal incident data across local, county, state, tribal and federal justice
systems. The benefits of a real-time, secure system for which law enforcement
can search, share, and collaborate information are incalculable. N-DEx is an
investigative, tactical, and strategic tool that enhances an agency’s overall
abilities and the safety of the public and law enforcement.
- All law enforcement and eligible
criminal justice agencies can contribute and be users.
- Users can search and use services and capabilities at
no cost, regardless if their agency is submitting data.
- Web services are being developed for data submitting agencies; once in place, agency users can access local, regional, and federal incident information systems in a one stop shop for analysis.
- Users can sign up for notification of query hits when
a connection is found in new or updated contributing data.
