The NamUs Training and Analysis Division provides analytical support and training to NamUs stakeholders throughout the United States. Analytical resources include NCIC offline searches, NamUs database searches for potential matches between missing and unidentified persons, and searches of both public and law enforcement sensitive databases for information to assist in the location of persons reported missing, family members for DNA collections, and next of kin. NamUs also partners with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP) to coordinate ViCAP resources and share case information.
