The Fact Is….

The FBI cannot legally keep DNA records on anyone who is not convicted of a crime. But have they stored yours?

DNA profiling is a technique used by forensic scientists to identify individuals by their DNA profile, which is an encrypted set of letters that describe a person’s DNA make-up. It is used in parental testing and in criminal investigations.

There are several DNA databases in existence around the world. Most of the large databases are government controlled. The United States maintains the largest DNA database, with the Combined DNA Index System holding over 5 million records as of 2007.

It is illegal for FBI agents to store DNA of a person not convicted of a crime. DNA collected from a suspect who is not later convicted, must be disposed of and must not be entered into the database.

**Crap! They have my DNA!  It’s a long story and you’ll never know about it.
