The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services is requesting funds for CJIS staff to continue working overtime to process Missing Disposition Records to enhance the accuracy, accessibility, completeness, and timeliness of records to state and federal systems used by the NICS. During this process, staff will update and automate Court Data (correcting Criminal History Record Information not currently captured on RAP Sheets). Funding is also being requested for CJIS Expungement staff to work overtime to process backlogged records and to update RAP Sheet records in Maryland's suspense file to ensure all relevant records are reported to the NICS Indices. The project will address more than 60,000 court ordered expungements received annually.
