Military or other federal applicant fingerprints recorded and submitted before May 2000 would not be in the FBI IAFIS (now called NGI) civil files.

having been finger printed twice, first time in 1961 for u.s. navy and 2nd time for u.s. coast guard, in 1971-72 for security clearances, was just wondering if the would be in the afis data base, it was just a random thought after watching a inside prison program
thanks

Additionally, for military service fingerprint cards at the FBI, all received after 19 May 2000 are stored in AFIS. From before that, about 95% of the enlisted fingerprint cards received between 1990 and 19 May 2000 have been entered into AFIS. The reason officer prints were not captured is a long story having to do with enlisted prints not being Henry classified starting with the Gulf War because the CJIS civil unit was too far behind to file the large influx by other than the first letter of the last name (at that time). Thus, enlisted fingerprint cards were stored in a large, separate group while officer cards were inserted into the huge civil repository among the other approximately 86 million civil fingerprint records. Thus, officer fingerprint cards from before 19 May 2000 are too difficult and costly to retrieve for large scale AFIS entry, unlike the easy to locate enlisted fingerprints from after the Gulf War.

Although promises were made by the FBI to make civil prints IAFIS searchable by agencies outside the FBI, cost overruns dried up funds for such features and it may be years before that becomes a reality.

A guess as to when the next IAFIS build will be let for bids is late FY05 or early FY06 (US federal fiscal years end on 30 September).

The FBI stores a master file of criminal fingerprints for federal, state and local law enforcement to search. This is the repository that is searched when you are arrested, or when unknown crime scene prints are checked against the FBI database. The FBI does have a "civil file", but this is not currently searchable by agencies that are external to the FBI. Part of the next generation of the FBI system is envisioned to be the capability to search the civil file in the event of mass disaster, unknown deceased, and possibly others scenarios that are not currently well defined.

I was fingerprinted when I joined the US Navy
in 1966. Does the FBI database contain my
fingerprints or just criminal's?
