CAUTION: NAME SEARCHES CAN BE UNRELIABLE. Use caution in evaluating NDCRI data, because the person for whom you have searched could have the same name, birth date, or other identifiers as another individual. Even if you believe your search has returned the correct match and the information appears to be about the person for whom you have searched, remember that:
  4. Two or more people can have the same name and birth date; and
  5. Criminal offenders frequently use aliases, including the names of others.
