IACP Innovation Award for NamUs

NFSTC has been recognized by the International Association of Chiefs of Police with an Excellence in Technology Award for the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs). The NamUs system, launched in January 2009, provides central reporting for unidentified remains and missing persons records that is available to and searchable by anyone. By using 21st century, web-based technology at www.namus.gov, a new way of solving missing persons/unidentified persons cases is quickly emerging.

Experts with years of experience in missing and unidentified persons investigations assisted in the development of the database, ensuring a system that can capture complete and relevant information. New missing persons cases can be added by law enforcement or the general public, be validated by case managers and be visible and searchable across the country in a very short turn-around time.

The IACP-iXP Excellence in Technology Award Program recognizes law enforcement agencies’ superior achievement and innovation in the field of communication and information technology. This international award program is designed to recognize leading practices through solutions that benefit law enforcement as a profession and innovative implementation of common off-the-shelf hardware/software.

Funding for this program is provided through a grant from the National Institute of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.
