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


** Due to COVID-19 delays and work process changes, sample status requests can take up to three weeks to be resolved. The NCIC DNA Indicator may be helpful during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience. **


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.
