Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $943,320)
The Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) will use FY21 NCHIP funds for two projects. Project 1) Show-Me Courts Enhancements: continue to support the Office of State Courts Administrator's (OSCA) enhancements of the statewide court case management system. OSCA will hire contractors for the development of the following processes for circuit level criminal cases: analysis and development for enhancements on misdemeanor and felony functionality; continued dashboard development for reporting to justice partners; analysis, design and development for replacement of criminal reports used for reporting to justice partners including but not limited to probation status report and criminal judgment and sentencing report; and analysis, design and development for creation of documents in a web browser and judges’ eSignature to improve warrant, summons and order issuance process. Project 2) Encrypted Email at Central repository: purchase encryption technology for the MSHP's Criminal Justice Information Services Division (MSHP CJIS). Since MSHP CJIS serves as the Central Repository for the state of Missouri, a vast majority of its communications are to law enforcement agencies, courts, and prosecutor's offices. Encryption will allow MSHP staff to securely work with partner agencies to exchange criminal justice information in a secure method that meets the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy requirements. This ability will much result in more timely reporting of criminal history record information to the central repository.
