NW3C designed the Internet Complaint Search & Investigation System (ICSIS™) to assist with Internet-related investigations.
The ICSIS database gives law enforcement access to the more than 2 million complaints filed with IC3 and allows users to search complaints, build cases and share information.
- Awareness: ICSIS makes agencies in different jurisdictions aware of the same crimes happening all across the country.
- Sharing: Approximately 3,000 law enforcement contacts are listed in the database.
- Assistance: Analysts are available to assist with investigations. They can build cases and refer preliminary findings to law enforcement.
The information stored in ICSIS can also be used for compiling statistical data, crime mapping, grant preparation and budget development. This important investigative tool is made possible by the continuing financial support of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).
IC3 offers a free, one-day training course that covers the basics of navigating the ICSIS system, during which students learn how to create cases and how to share information. Students will also receive additional information on specific tools they can use to aid in their investigations. Click here for available training and to register for a class. Please direct any questions or requests in reference to hosting ICSIS training to ICSIS@nw3c.org.
Access to ICSIS is free for law enforcement agencies; however, you must have an account. If you do not have an account (user name and password), contact membership services at 804-967-6210.
