Warrant Information Network
The Warrant Information Network (WIN), the central law enforcement

and headquarters law enforcement operations, supporting fugitive
investigations, warrant administration, threat management, security of
USMS protectees, and headquarters oversight of district investigations.
WIN is the main information gateway for the USMS to the National Crime
Information Center (NCIC).
Criminal Intelligence Branch administers WIN, providing user support, training,
and system and development oversight. WIN is used by 2,500 USMS
management, investigative, and administrative personnel and handles over
15,000 transactions per day including 100 new fugitive, warrant or threat
record entries. WIN houses information and images regarding more than
700,000 subjects of USMS fugitive and protective investigations and it
interfaces with the National Crime Information Center and the National Law
Enforcement Telecommunications System.
