Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $534,880)

The goal of the National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) is to improve the Nation's safety and security by enhancing the quality, completeness, and accessibility of criminal history record information and by insuring the nationwide implementation of criminal justice and non-criminal justice background check systems. BJS provides direct financial and technical assistance to the States to improve criminal history and other related records and to build their infrastructure to connect to national record check systems both to supply information and to conduct the requisite checks.

Funds will be used to: (1) continue expansion of the Juvenile Tracking System (JTS) to allow additional counties to submit juvenile criminal history information to the Interstate Identification Index through the State's central record repository; and (2) continue efforts to fully implement the Pennsylvania's Protection From Abuse Database (PFAD) by improving and expanding access for authorized users and by identifying persons who are wanted for stalking and domestic violence offenses.
