I listen to my local police on a scanner and I was wondering if somone would know what software or program the dispatchers use to get the license plate or number information when the police stops you?

We can get backround checks easily through the Internet but that takes days to get a report back via email...There software lets them get the information about us within seconds...I would just like to know which software is it so I can say to myself "oh....thats what there using"

I am located in California, so I dont know really if its State to state or what...

ALso, do they also get these results back from a Mainframe type system running UNIX?

I would appreciate it.

It's not the software, its the fact that they are directly hooked into the state database...

NCIC and APSIN

NCIC is nation wide . . . APSIN is Alaska Public Safety Information Network. Both are databases. Both are accessible to law enforcement agencies - only. You will not have access, and cannot get access.

And would that be a Mainframe type enviroment? Where can I view their Common Technical Enviroment reports?

I do not need access and Im not asking this question to cause harm or damage..Please make a clear note of this please. I just wish to know how inforamtion gets accross since Im listening to my scanner.

I have heard of the NCIC system and thats provided by the FBI (I think).

Does that run on a UNIX platform?

Don't most LE agencies encrypt their MDT's now? Many here use RD-LAP protocol and cannot be decoded. I know back in the day you could decode MDT's using some software and a scanner with a discriminator tap, but times have really changed. Now all thats left is AAA tow trucks.

Also just like listening to cellular and cordless telephones, I believe decoding MDT's is now illegal in the US.

Also, most states have their own intrastate information clearinghouses. Arizona has ACIC which is a restricted access database as well. As for NCIC, information on it is only as good as the information that the reporting agency submits-if it submits it. Most agencies have policies that determine what information must be input to NCIC and state databases and what information is not. Here in Arizona, a wanter person's information may or may not be placed on NCIC or ACIC depending on the originating agency. Warrants for most misdemeanors will not go on either database if the requesting jurisdiction is unwilling to extradite (again, many won't extradite for low level misdemeanors).
