- Manage caseloads and reduce research time
- Prioritize offenders to maximize investigative resources
- Initiate contact with consensual partners, witnesses, and cold case victims
- Prioritize and locate offenders for DNA collection

Forensic Investigative Service
Sexual Assault Kit CODIS Hit Management
Backlogs of sexual assault kits across the country are being cleared and the results are generating new investigative leads for law enforcement. As caseloads increase, so does the administrative burden of researching cases.
Through this service, we can provide investigative location services for clients working to manage significant caseloads resulting from DNA backlogs being cleared in an effort to reduce the workload and streamline investigations.
Lawfully Owed DNA Samples
Lawfully owed DNA is defined as DNA samples from qualifying offenders who should have their samples in CODIS based on the type and time of the office related to applicable state law. Across the country, it has been discovered hundreds of thousands of samples that should be in CODIS are not. Investigators and researchers are working to identify these offenders and ultimately seek the collection of sample and submission to laboratories.
Forensic Investigative Service allows bulk research of the location of these individuals through public records access.
Solve Violent Crimes Efficiently
Testing DNA backlogs is a major step in closing thousands of cases. However, as results are returned to law enforcement, investigators quickly become burdened with large caseloads. Using the Forensic Investigative Service (FIS) agencies provide minimal individual information to leverage millions of public records to locate:
- Consensual partners
Support County-wide or State-wide Efforts
The Forensic Investigative Service is available to active Accurint® LE and/or AVCC account users who are properly credentialed to access public records for investigative/government purposes.
Additionally, agencies working on county-wide or state- wide efforts can utilize this service to support local law enforcement by maintaining an active list of the identities, batch outcomes, and current status in a central location that could be accessed by all participating agencies.
Results Returned in Approximately 2 weeks
This service enables thousands of individuals to be researched at one time. The tiered batch data package provides information crucial to locating people and prioritizing investigations. This includes:
- Current best-known address/phone number
- Deceased information (date, location)
- Incarceration status and criminal records
- Recent and historical jail booking records
Additionally, email addresses can be queried, and jail booking alerts can be set up on select individuals, as needed.
