The National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) Document and Media Exploitation (DOMEX) Branch has developed a uniquely efficient approach that allows its DOMEX analysts to quickly prioritize, organize, and analyze significant amounts of seized documentary and electronic evidence.
NDIC's DOMEX methodology integrates input from the requesting agencies' case agents, prosecutors, and analysts into the DOMEX mission planning process, thereby ensuring that the DOMEX mission will be focused to meet the needs and priorities of the requesting agencies. In conjunction with the input from the requestors, DOMEX analysts establish the Priority Intelligence Requirements (PIRs) for each DOMEX mission, thereby limiting the scope of the mission to the most important elements particular to the requestor's investigation.
NDIC's DOMEX analysts are able to quickly identify assets, the key associations and other investigative leads from their analysis of the evidence. As a result, investigators, prosecutors, and analysts can more rapidly determine the scope of their evidentiary holdings, identify previously unknown relationships and assets, and better prepare for court proceedings. All DOMEX personnel are trained in proper evidence-handling techniques to ensure that our services are conducted with the utmost professionalism.
