CID (Composite Intelligence Database)
The Composite Intelligence Database is an encrypted, searchable repository of information on individuals or groups. Each file has attached dynamic attributes pulled from various intelligence sources instead of being just a static record, in order to enable that file to be updated on an immediate basis, and each individual in the system is “tagged.”
Over time, the concept of what constitutes a CID has evolved. From the first little “black books” or blacklists distributed by Nevada’s gaming regulatory bodies that were the first casino information databases, to CDs of blacklisted individuals updated once a quarter, from our own Casino Information Database into what is now a wholly digital interactive, updatable, searchable product.
It is a database of information made up of case files on a variety of criminal elements, individuals and groups, from thieves to traffickers to terrorists, and their known associates, updated immediately from different sources, as soon as that information is made available through the SSIN, or from outside watch-lists, including national and international law enforcement, and international agencies, after verification.
The new CID does not have to be stored locally, it is stored in a private, encrypted repository operated out of the Biometrica Fusion Center in Las Vegas. It has been developed to allow you to maximize your access to current information about criminal elements, or politically enhanced people, and meet your Know Your Customer requirements, by providing a database you can run your background check against.
The access to data is dependent on the kind of subscription you have. All customers will have access to law enforcement verified data on convicted felons, available arrest data, and to law enforcement wanted lists.
However, a retail establishment, or a hotel that is not connected to a casino, would not have the right to data on a card cheat, or an advantage player, unless that card cheat or advantage player is wanted for a felony or has been convicted for it.
Similarly, a big box store might have a shoplifter that has been added to the database by that retail establishment, a person that has received a warning but has not been handed over to law enforcement authorities. The store might decide to keep an eye on him or her, and put him or her on their X-LST (see X-LST), as a blacklisted individual.
They could opt to alert other retail establishments about this customer, but that alert or person would not show up as a case file for anyone not connected to that particular establishment or to retail customers they have set up an alert for, and other subscribers will not be able to pull that information into the Advanced Facial Recognition system if that person hasn’t been convicted of an offense.
