Civil Name Check (CNC)

The Civil Name Check (CNC) Program is designed to provide criminal history record information to authorized Repository users based upon an inquiry made by name and numeric identifiers rather than fingerprints. Pursuant to provisions contained in Nevada Revised Statutes, chapter 179A, Nevada records are available to a multitude of both criminal justice and non-criminal justice requestors. Nevada Criminal Justice Information System (NCJIS) policy allows the release of information, when authorized by law, upon a written request identifying the subject of inquiry by full name, date of birth, or other numeric forms of identification. Releases must be accompanied by a disclaimer concerning the reliability of the information released.

    Program Goals

    • To provide timely and complete information to users for use in making informed employment decisions; and,
    • To use as a basis of inquiry the subject's name, date of birth and other numeric identifiers , as prescribed by this program.

      Note: This program is available to only those users that will directly employ the person about whom they are performing the Civil Name Check and to third party agencies that provide background services to the employer.

        Program Development and Implementation

        Program development and implementation is a joint effort between the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Records, Communications and Compliance Division. The NCJIS Compliance Unit of the Records Bureau manages this program.
