Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $355,750)

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.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Crime Information Center will use funds to: (1) develop, in collaboration with the Prosecuting Attorney's Council (PAC), a prosecutor interface system to ensure that local prosecutors have the ability to electronically submit final disposition data and charge initiation information; and (2) expand the ability to access sex offender information by converting paper files (maintained by local sheriff's offices) and storing them in the State's Image Archive System.
