Request for Federal DNA Database Unit (FDDU) / Federal Convicted Offender (FCO) Sample Status

As of January 2019, federal law enforcement has the ability to view a subject’s DNA status via their NCIC criminal history record. Near the top of the criminal history record, above the biographical information, there now is a DNA indicator that will inform law enforcement as to whether or not a DNA profile already exists in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) for a particular subject. This report can be accessed at any time prior to arrest and/or booking, therefore saving law enforcement time and resources by significantly reducing duplicative DNA collections. This DNA indicator is useful for determining whether or not a previously submitted DNA sample has been uploaded to CODIS. If the status of a DNA sample submitted within the last 30 days must be determined, the FDDU Sample Status Request form is recommended.
