Will my DNA go into a database?

Victim’s DNA is prohibited from being entered into any database by federal law.  Only unidentified crime scene DNA profiles or profiles from suspects who have signed a consent form will be added to the local database.  Additionally, the unidentified DNA must be associated with the investigation of a criminal case.  Convicts who have been convicted of a felony are added to the database under Ohio law.  Ohio law also allows for arrestee samples to be added to the database.  Anyone arrested in Ohio will have a sample collected from them to be added to the database.
