Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $3,865,826)

Under this award, the Arizona Supreme Court proposes to implement the Statewide Juvenile Prohibited Possessor Case Management Project. The purpose of the project is to provide juvenile prohibited possessor records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and to allow NICS agents to query the system 24/7 to perform the needed investigation into the purchase of a gun by a person under 21 years of age. The Arizona Supreme Court plans to achieve this purpose by replacing the existing aging juvenile probation case management systems with a more robust, modernized, and integrated system. This updated statewide system will, among other things, enable the Arizona Judicial Branch to transmit juvenile records to NICS, thus providing an efficient and effective means of identifying ineligible firearm purchasers on a statewide basis.
