14B NCAC 18B .0203       VALIDATIONS

(a)  Law enforcement and criminal justice agencies shall validate all record entries, with the exception of articles, made into the NCIC restricted and unrestricted files.

(b)  Validation shall be accomplished by reviewing the original entry and current supporting documents. Stolen vehicle, stolen boat, wanted person, missing person, protection order, and sex offender file entries require consultation with any appropriate complainant, victim, prosecutor, court, motor vehicle registry files or other appropriate source or individual in addition to the review of the original file entry and supporting documents.

(c)  Validations shall be conducted through the CIIS automated method.

(d)  Any records containing inaccurate data shall be modified and records which are no longer current or cannot be substantiated by a source document shall be removed from the NCIC.

(e)  Any agency that does not properly validate its records shall have their records purged for that month by NCIC. An agency shall be notified of the record purge through an NCIC-generated message sent to the agency's main DCIN device.  An agency may re-enter the cancelled records once the records have been validated.
