Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $194,328)
The Oregon State Police (OSP) will use FY21 NCHIP funds to purchase nine Livescan devices for police departments and jails that have reached end-of-life or to implement Livescan equipment for the first time, in order to replace ink and paper used by agencies to record and report their arrest data to the state repository. The goal of the Livescan purchase project is two-fold. First, to support the local agency obligation of fingerprint and arrest photo submissions to the state repository through assistance in obtaining equipment to sustain their operations. And secondly, ensure Oregon repository data exchange programs with state and federal partners are continued which in turn will benefit public safety statewide and nationally.
