The Colorado Bureau of Investigation or CBI InstaCheck Unit is responsible for performing firearms purchase background checks.
Colorado acts as the Point of Contact (POC) for All Firearms Transactions. Colorado is a “POC state” along with California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, and Virginia.
- “NICS states” are states in which the FBI Conducts NICS Checks for All Firearms Transactions
- “POC states” act as the Point of Contact (POC) for All Firearms Transactions
- “Partial POC” states Act as a Partial Point of Contact (POC) for NICS Checks
Accurate data entry is a crucial part of making sure firearms don’t end up in the hands of criminals. Additionally, paying employees to hand-type information into systems like CBI InstaCheck is time-consuming and costly.
