NDI Application Instructions for California Agencies

The NDI database is considered confidential by IADLEST. Access to NDI will only be granted to a California department or agency personnel who are part of the peace officer background process, and who meet the following criteria:

  • MUST have a California POST ID
  • MUST be listed on the California POST agency roster (If you are unsure about the POST roster, contact your California POST representative via email at: NDI Inquiry )
  • MUST request access from a governmental email account (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc... are not acceptable)
  • MUST provide supervisor and contact information

You MUST meet ALL of these criteria.  Failure to do so will result in denial, and significantly delay processing of your application.

If you have questions about any of the above criteria, you may contact the POST via email at:  NDI Inquiry before you submit an application.

Access is NOT authorized for private or independent background investigators.
