The Importance of Criminal Records

Dec 16, 2007
Throughout the world, criminal records provide central database for police and law enforcement agencies. In the USA, when a suspect is arrested, multiple copies of his fingerprints are taken, of which one is sent to Federal Bureau of Investigation located in Washington, DC and another is sent to State Identification System. In case of later interrogation of the suspect a notification is issued to the national crime information center where the Federal Bureau of Investigation will inform the concerned agency of the location and status of that suspect.

The criminal records are comprised of various intelligence files. These intelligence files consist of biographical information about the specific criminals. The files indicate several important characteristics of the criminals such as areas of interests, skills, associates and other relevant information that might help the police to apprehend future criminals.

There is much importance of criminal records in the United States. Records are very much important for the primary analysis of a crime, so that the law enforcing agencies may analyze the trend and can provide proactive support. Almost all of the states have gotten their own department who are responsible for the arrests made throughout the states.

These state departments work in much more detail format about the criminal records. It not only records the arrest information, but also gathers detailed information of the court actions that occurs after the arrest.

The federal government of United States of America conserves extensive criminal track records and play as a storehouse for all agencies who would account their own data. One such database is known as the National Crime Information Center. In most of the cases, the private sector is not given authority to explore the database.

Let us explore the effect of technology in storing criminal records Nowadays, criminal detection has improved a lot. With the advancement of technology, criminal records have become much more bunch full and informative. Biochemical analysis of the suspects blood, fluid, tissue, hair provides potential evidence of the crime scene. It also includes investigation of firearms, toxicological test, metallurgical and mineralogical tests. This tests and procedures provide transparent and plausible analysis on finding out the real suspect.

The primary goal of the criminal record is to provide criminal history that can be used for several objectives, such as identification, criminal investigation, and criminal prosecution.

No matter how many of the department works for gathering and storing criminal records, there should be a coordinating effort to preserve data in a safe and secure way so that crime identification in later time may become much easier and faster, and the next generation takes the entire benefits of the present criminal records.
