The department of attorney general may establish and maintain an automated fingerprint identification system database that would allow the department to store and maintain all fingerprints submitted in accordance with the national criminal records check system. The automated fingerprint identification system database would provide for an automatic notification if, and when, a subsequent criminal arrest fingerprint card is submitted to the system that matches a set of fingerprints previously submitted in accordance with a national criminal records check. If the aforementioned arrest results in a conviction, the department shall immediately notify those individuals and entities with which that individual is associated and who are required to be notified of disqualifying information concerning national criminal records checks as provided in chapters 17, 17.4, 17.7.1 of title 23 or § 23-1-52. The information in the database established under this section is confidential and not subject to disclosure under chapter 2 of title 38.
