Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $227,306)
The New Hampshire Department of Justice (NHDOJ) will use FY21 NCHIP funds to purchase 11 Livescans which will improve the overall reporting of criminal history records. The continuation of new equipment implementation and replacement is critical in the State of New Hampshire’s effort to make more records available to NICS, and to ensure the most updated, completed information is at the hands of all criminal justice agencies. The NHDOJ will increase their inventory with a deployment of 10 additional Livescan stations, with an additional unit obligated to the Town of Litchfield, totaling 11 units. This will help to move the state closer to 100% collection of fingerprints supported arrests to bring the state’s overall inventory to a total of 64 machines.
