Office of the Revisor of Statutes

It shall be the duty of the officials having charge of the penal institutions of the state or the
release of prisoners therefrom to furnish to the bureau, as the superintendent may require, finger
and thumb prints, photographs, distinctive physical mark identification data, other identification
data, modus operandi reports, and criminal records of prisoners heretofore, now, or hereafter
confined in such penal institutions, together with the period of their service and the time, terms,
and conditions of their discharge. This duty to furnish information includes, but is not limited
to, requests for fingerprints as the superintendent of the bureau deems necessary to maintain and
ensure the accuracy of the bureau's criminal history files, to reduce the number of suspense files,
or to comply with the mandates of section 299C.111 relating to the reduction of the number of
suspense files where a disposition record is received that cannot be linked to an arrest record.
