FBI Fingerprinting Vancouver
FBI fingerprinting Vancouver is a result for the need for greater security has pushed governments and government agencies to build a database of individuals which t the goal for it is to be 100% accurate and error free. At the same time, it can also be used for general purpose applications such as quick identification.
Currently, most of the agencies use name-based database for a variety of objectives. This includes cross border travel (criminal record check), background check by employers and assessing restricted areas. We sometimes do FBI fingerprinting in Vancouver as part of the process regarding our waiver cases. Again, this is only relevant in case specific issues.
Let’s discuss how the FBI’s databases interact with each of the individual states counterparts. We will use the King County Washington as a example. A clerk in Seattle enters John Does drive by shooting criminal conviction history into WASIC. WASIC will then electronically connect with the FBI database NCIC and relay this information. This stands for the National Crime Information Centre.
A year later, John Doe goes to Harrys Sporting Goods in Tacoma Washington and wants to but an M-4 rifle. The store clerk is obligated to run John’s name through the FBI’s NICS (National Crime Information System) database. The clerk receives a hit on John’s name and declines to sell him the rifle.
John leaves the story angry and finds a buddy/straw purchaser to buy the rifle for him. This works but they got stopped for speeding and the Seattle police officer discovers what both gentlemen previously did. They are then both subsequently arrested and the straw purchaser(Bo Diddly) also gets his information entered into WASIC. Then the process starts over again.
However, at times, this method may not provide a conclusive way of confirming a person’s identity. This is where fingerprinting comes in handy. The FBI maintains various databases at its headquarters in West Virginia. As mentioned above, this type of verification guarantees quick identification and retrieval of data. Mentioned below are some of the advantages of fingerprinting over traditional name-based record check.
FBI Fingerprinting Vancouver and in other cities is not just about criminal records. It is becoming a de facto way of preserving records (both criminal and general). It is expected with the general availability of this service and RCMP’s growing ability to respond to screening requests this will become a broadly accepted method of identity assurance throughout Canada. In short, it takes care of identification and security needs of government agencies and corporations.
Interestingly, a fingerprint search of the National Repository of Criminal Records is conducted by one of the integral wings of RCMP. However, fingerprints submitted to CCRTIS for criminal record checks are only used to confirm your identity, and they are not added to the database for subsequent searches of various kinds.
