Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $1,228,501)
Under this award, the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Office of Criminal Justice Assistance (NV DPS, OCJA) will make a sub-award to the Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS), Records, Communications and Compliance Division (RCCD). The Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS), Records, Communications and Compliance Division (RCCD) will use funds to engage in a multiyear effort to modernize the various systems that compose the Nevada Criminal Justice Information System (NCJIS). The modernization will affect more than 200 agencies that have a foreign host connection or those currently connecting by web interface because financial barriers have prevented direct connection. Currently, the web interface system are the Justice Link (JLink) and Justice Link Client (JLClient) statewide message switch platforms, which necessitate the transformation and acquisition of the new system. The NCJIS Modernization effort will replace existing, and add critical system functionality for all internal and external users. The change will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the public safety operations and provide improved services to the public. Access to criminal justice and civil applications will now be through the new Nevada Civil and Criminal Information System (NCCIS) portal and connections.
