Wanted Notices



All wanted notices containing fingerprints, including the wanted

notices inserted in the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin, should be filed

in the fingerprint file by classification formula, and the names

appearing on these wanted notices should be indexed and placed in the

name files. Concerning the small wanted notices inserted in the FBI

Law Enforcement Bulletin, a suggested procedure would be to paste each

individual notice on a blank 8- by 8-inch white card. The wanted

notices are filed by the fingerprint classification and the names

indexed and placed in the name file. When an apprehension notice is

received concerning the wanted notice, a proper notation should be

made on the name card and the wanted notice in the fingerprint file.

If these canceled wanted notices endanger the efficiency of the file,

it is suggested that the name-index card and the fingerprint-wanted

notice be destroyed. Should the bureau adopt this practice it is

suggested that the 8- by 8-inch cards be used again for other wanted

notices. In this manner it would be possible to use the blank card for

eight of these notices.



The Federal Bureau of Investigation will make available to law

enforcement agencies a special Wanted Notice form (No. 1-12) in

order that they can place wanted notices against the fingerprints in

the files of the FBI.
