    Announcing the NDI 2.0

    The National Decertification Index (NDI) is a national registry of certificate or license revocation actions relating to officer misconduct.  The NDI has received a facelift and some technical improvements.  We're calling it the NDI 2.0, and it features:
    • An improved, easier to use design.
    • New, simpler searching based on last name, with sortable results.
    • More information shown to make it easier for you to make a determination.
    • For current IADLEST website users, the same username and password will now allow you to access the NDI as well other IADLEST systems such as NLEARN*
    Access the NDI 2.0 at, or from the Projects menu at the top of the website.

    To improve security, the login accounts for the old NDI are no longer active.
    To activate your access to the NDI 2.0, please visit the NDI and click the Request Access button. If you already have an IADLEST website account, be sure to log in first. If you don't, it's not a problem, just fill out the form to identify yourself and set up your account. Your POST director will be notified automatically to review and approve your request.

    If you do not receive a reply within several days, contact your POST director. If you still have problems, we will troubleshoot, contact me at and I will forward to your POST or our tech people.

    * Access is subject to approval.  The records contained in the NDI are provided by participating state government agencies and should be verified with the contributing authority.  Inclusion in the database does not necessarily preclude any individual from appointment as an officer.
