What is NamUs - IdentifyUs.org ?




NamUs was developed by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) in partnership with the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC). Although NamUs is a free web-based tool accessible to everyone, it is geared to law enforcement and medical examiners/coroners. Available 24/7, NamUs allows families and victim advocates to collaborate by providing thorough, primary source information about missing and unidentified persons cases in the United States.
