Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $1,039,460)
The New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services is requesting funds to partner with NY Prosecutors Training Institute (NYPTI) to re-program the current NYPTI's Prosecutors Case Management System (PCMS) in order to continue receiving automatic case information and updates from OCA's new UCMS Criminal Extract system. The upgrade will allow PCMS to flag, generate notices, and track MCDV eligible offenses ensuring that these convictions are transmitted to the NICS Indices. NYSDCJS will also use funding to create a monthly validation process with the NY State Police and the NCIC which will bring NYS into compliance with NCIC policy that requires agencies to validate records monthly. Orders of Protection will be updated in the system which will become a valid source of information to provide more complete and accurate information to the state and national record systems, including the NICS Indices.
