Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $350,000)

The goal of the Tribal Criminal History Record Improvement Program (T-CHRIP) is to improve public safety in Indian Country by enhancing the quality, completeness, and accessibility of criminal history record information and by facilitating the implementation of criminal justice and non-criminal justice background check systems.

The goal of this project is to equip the White Earth Tribe with the ability to electronically store data associated with its judicial, law enforcement, and human services divisions, allowing them to share the collected statistical data with state and federal agencies. The installation of an AFIS/Livescan workstation at the White Earth Police Department, along with servers and software within the offices that make up the White Earth Judicial System, will allow a secured flow of both criminal and non-criminal data within the tribe as well as with state and federal agencies.
