The Virginia State Police (VSP) will use funds for the following projects: Project 1:  CRIS Business Analyst Project. Under the CRIS Business Analyst project, VSP will support a Business Analyst to collect, document, refine and provide business requirements related to the Criminal and Rap Back Information System that will replace the current Java based CCH. In addition, VSP will consult with SEARCH, The National Consortium for Justice Information and Statistics, on Rap Back system testing and training. Efforts under this project will provide an enhanced and stable criminal history reporting system. Project 2:  Research and Resolve Missing Dispositions Project. The VSP Central Criminal Records Exchange (CCRE) is the sole repository for criminal history information in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Criminal history information retained in the repository is used for firearm purchase background checks, employment screening and the overall support of criminal justice functions.

Project 3: Modernize Court Interface Project.
