Numbering Data at your Fingertips

The data needed to complete investigations – now at your fingertips

During investigations, time matters – and criminals know it. Quickly switching phones and phone numbers from one service provider to another is one way they evade detection. To save valuable time, law enforcement and public safety personnel like you need to quickly find the name and number for service providers’ law enforcement contacts. The Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) – the nation’s authoritative number portability database – has this information.

Fortunately, the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) – the nation’s authoritative number portability database – has this information and can provide you with accurate and timely access to this as well as data regarding service providers of record and complete service provider histories.
