Interstate Exchange of Driver’s License Photos

Interstate Exchange of Driver’s License Photos

Now that Maryland and Virginia are active participants in the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (NLETS) Information Sharing of Photographs (NISP) Program, Capital Wireless Information Net (CapWIN) law enforcement users in Maryland and Virginia with National Crime Information Center (NCIC) access, have instant and secure access to Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) photographs from any of the more than 18 NISP participating states.  This expanded data access builds upon CapWIN’s photo delivery service, which began as a unique innovation four years ago as the only system in the region to provide law enforcement users in the field instant and secure mobile access to Maryland driver’s license photos.

About CapWIN
